    I like the “Rope” method of weather forecasting.

    Let a short piece of rope dangle from your hand outside…

    2. If it gets white, it is snowing.

    3. If it is sideways, it is windy.

    4. If you can’t see it, it is nighttime (technically not a weather thing, but helpful nonetheless).

    “high humidity… tends to precede heavy rain.”

    Unless you’re in Texas… then it’s always humid, all the time. :-/
