In each language we know sayings such as: An evening red and a morning grey, two sure signs of one fair day. If it rains before seven, ’twill cease before eleven etc. The weather has a great impact on our lives, not only on what we wear or eat, but also on our mood.

The text explains for instance how a tornado arises, how different kinds of clouds develop, why snow is white or where the ring around the moon comes from.
