Tomorrow is Saint Bartholomew’s Day and as with many of the Saints’ Days, there is a weatherlore saying associated with the day.
In this case, an example is, “As with Bartholomew’s weather, so goes the autumn weather”.
In other words, a very warm, dry day tomorrow would indicate a warm, dry autumn.
This reminds me of St. Lawrence’s Day, August 10th.
That day also is supposed to be an indicator of fall, but that day was a stormy one.
However, it was also very warm. So, the two Saints’ Days present us with conflicting forecasts concerning our autumn.
Forecasts based on a Saint’s Day are pretty unreliable, but they can be fun.
This time we have a choice. The autumn will either be warm and dry or warm and stormy.
We’ll see which one holds true.
