This is an especially good time of year to observe weather patterns and how they can affect us.
For example, after a period of cooler weather and northerly breezes, we might experience a shift to a southerly breeze and higher temperatures. Since a south breeze often carries moisture, there is an increased chance of rain.
Following the rain, we’ll get another change in the wind direction. This time, back to a flow that’s more northerly. And so it goes.
Keep an eye on the weather over the next few weeks and see if this general pattern holds true: the temperature rises, we have a chance of rain and then the temperature falls again.
With a little practice, you can be a pretty good backyard forecaster.
