8 Weather WARNINGS

1. Rising smoke points to fair weather; if it's driven downward, expect rain.
2. When trees show the underside of their leaves, a storm is approaching.
3. A ring around the moon foretells rain about 50 percent of the time.
4. When heavy dew forms on grass, the air is dry and skies are clear.
5. Rain is more likely at low tide because of reduced air pressure.
6. Lightning to the south or east won't reach you; if it's to the west it will.
7. High clouds won't rain on you; it's the low clouds that'll pound you.
8. Low-pressure air makes it hard to fly, so birds spend more time perched.
