Weather Wisdom

Every Scout ought to be able to read signs of the weather, especially when going tamping, and to read a barometer.

He should remember the following points:

  • red at night, shepherd's delight (i.e. fine day coming)
  • red in morning, shepherd's warning (i.e. rain)
  • yellow sunset means wind
  • pale yellow sunset means rain
  • dew and fog in early morning means fine weather
  • low dawn means fine weather
  • high dawn means wind (high dawn is when the sun rises over a bank of clouds, high above the horizon)
  • soft clouds, fine weather
  • hard-edged clouds, wind
  • rolled or jagged clouds, strong wind

"When the wind's before the rain,
Soon you may make sail again;
When the rain's before the wind,
Then your sheets and halyards mind."
