Weather Signs

Across Llŷn there are many ways in which you are supposed to be able to tell what weather is coming. Here are just a few examples:

If you can see Pembrokeshire to the south, it is likely to rain (there is a lump on the horizon known on Llŷn as "the little rain mountain" and if you can see this it is a sign of rain coming).

Also, if you can see the sun reflecting off the windows of the cafe on the summit of Snowdon or if you can see Holyhead or Ireland clearly, that is supposed to be another sign of rain.

Dry sand blowing across the beach at Llanbedrog is also said to indicate rain for the following day.

These are just a few taken from "Llŷn" a fascinating book by Elfed Gruffydd, translated into English by Gwyneth Owen:

"Cloud cover on Garn Fadryn - better weather will follow"

"The bell on the rocks of Carreg-y-Trai near St. Tudwal's Islands can be heard from Cilan in fair weather" (however the bell has now been removed!)

"If a ship shelters in Nefyn Bay, the following storm will last two or three days"
