How To Help Predict An Approaching Rain or Snow Storm


This is a trick that has been passed down for hundreds of years and was even used heavily by some of the first major civilizations. After using it for several years myself, I can honestly say that it is very accurate as will most survival experts. The concept is very simple and all you have to do is monitor the look of the sun or the moon. Normally the sun and the moon will have clear and defined edges but if you happen to notice that there is a halo around either one of them then you can expect either rain or snow within 12 to 36 hours. The halo effect is caused by light that is being refracted through small ice crystals contained among cirrus clouds located high up in the Earth’s atmosphere. The presence of the halo indicates that a low pressure system is building and precipitation can be expected sometime in the near future. If you notice that the halo around the sun or the moon are not complete or broken to one side, then that means the storm is approaching from the broken side of the halo and that the timeline is getting even shorter.
