Common weather lores employed in forecasting what's to come

Have you never noticed seagulls huddled together on the shore? There is a well-known weather lore that says when seagulls sit on the sand, it's never good weather when you're on land.

Remember waterbeds? Well, seagulls don't need them because they generally sleep on the water. If you see them huddled and napping on the land, the lore implies an indication that the seas are too rough for a good night's sleep.

Have you seen many mushrooms around this year? As the expression goes, "mushrooms galore, much snow in store. No mushrooms at all, no snow will fall." If you're picking lots of them, you're in for a heap of snow, so you better save them for some hot cream of mushroom soup, according to the myth.

Watch the video above from The Weather Network reporter Nathan Coleman to get even more often-used lores in weather storytelling.
