As we are variously suffering random weather events at the moment, I thought it might be interesting to look at country sayings month by month regarding the weather. In addition, there are other supposed "indicators" of good or bad weather.
Hope it will be of interest - especially if we have regional variations!
So: to start it off, for May:
"A wet May brings a good load of hay" ie plenty of sunshine in June. (Good - that means we should have something resembling a summer, then )
"A cold May and a windy,
Makes a fat barn and a findy*"
*findy = good weight
Let's hope we don't have too much hot weather (doesnt seem likely, does it?) because: "A hot May makes a fat churchyard"
Must be lots of other folklore out there . . .
