St. Swithun's day, if thou dost rain,

For forty days it will remain;

St. Swithun's day, if thou be fair,

For forty days 'twill rain na mair.


Ever heard of St. Swithun's day on the 15th July? Who was this St. Swithun and what has he got to do with a 40 day weather prediction?
In this episode,  Sam will discuss the St. Swithun's day weather folklore, so listen to find out whether this myth gets busted or not!


And for those of you like things modern, check out Sam's updated myth below:

St Swithun's day if thou dost rain,

For forty days, Atlantic weather systems may well remain;

St. Swithun's day, if thou be fair,

For forty days, the Azores High could dry the air.
