  1. Signs of fine weather
    When there is a mist (of) on the sea
    When there is a heavy dew in the evening.
    When there is a rainbow at night
    A red sunset in summer is for heat and a red sunset in winter is for frost.
    When the cows lie down in the centre of the field
    When the smoke goes up straight from the chimney.
    Red sky in summer is often sign of a storm.
    When the evening sky is blue
    The old people say when there is as much blue in the sky as would make a cloak for The Virgin the weather next day will be fine
