There are many old sayings about the weather.
Old people that have most of the sayings.
When the swallows fly low it is a great sign of rain. They saw if the seagulls fly towards the land it is a great token of rain. If there is a ring around the moon it is a great sign of rain. When the cat puts his tail to the fire it is a great token of rain. When the first drop hits you on the eye you are very near rain.
