Clouds: Small And Round Like A Dappley-grey With A North-wind Fair Weather For 2 Or 3 Days
THIS is differently expressed by other Authors. My Lord Bacon tells
us, that if Clouds appear white, and drive to the N. W. it is a Sign
of several Days fair Weather.
OUR old English Almanacks have a Maxim to this Purpose.
If woolly Fleeces spread the Heavenly Way,
Be sure no Rain disturbs the Summer Day.
AND Pliny to the same Purpose.[c]
[Footnote c: Ubi supra.]
SI Sol oriens cingetur Orbe, & postea totus defluxerit aequaliter,
IF the rising Sun be incompassed with an Iris, or Circle of white
Clouds, and they equally fly away, this is a Sign of fair Weather.
THERE is another English Proverb worth remembering.
In the Decay of the Moon,
A cloudy Morning bodes a fair Afternoon.
