Weather Folklore

Do woolly worms and nut-gathering squirrels give us hints to the long winter ahead? Is there science behind these sayings? While exploring weather proverbs from online sources and books, students will have questions that will help them think about the relationship between weather and their own daily experiences.

Weather Folklore and Sayings

Weather folklore is often dismissed as nothing more than a grab bag of sayings, old wives’ tales, legends, and superstitions. In other words, folklore is considered the opposite of science. But folklore and science have more in common than you might imagine. What we call scientific method is based on observation and evidence -  and so is a great deal of weather folklore.
