Have you ever heard this saying? I have and always wondered why the saying might predict the coming weather, so I did a little research. According to the Library of Congress, to understand this, you have to understand a little about weather and sky color. Weather systems generally move from West to East across the country. That's easy enough to understand. That's why I always listen to Elizabeth's weather since she will have experienced it several days before us (in general).
The colors we see are a little harder to explain, but basically, sunlight passes through the atmosphere and bounces off water and dust particles. Depending on the amount of these particles, we may see the sky as red since the red wavelengths are the longest. Did I lose you yet? The abbreviated explanation: red skies seen in the morning mean a lot of moisture in the atmosphere and rain or snow is likely on the way!
This was the sky this morning although it looked much redder to the naked eye. And it is indeed snowing with predictions of 4-6 inches in our area and as much as 12 inches south of us.
Research made me so thirsty, I forgot to take a photo of my Orange Pekoe tea that I am drinking today. I hope you enjoyed my little weather lesson, although our lovely T Stands for Tuesday Host, Elizabeth, is a Scientist and may likely explain all this much clearer!
