There are some weather sayings connected to today January 25th, which is St. Paul's Day.
If St.Pauls Day be fair and clear,
It doth betide a happy year;
But if by chance it then should rain,
It will make dear all kinds of grain;
And if the clouds make dark the sky,
Then neate* and fowls this year shall die;
If blustering winds do blow aloft,
Then wars shall trouble the realm full oft.
* Neate is an old word for cattle
According to my Book of Saints January 25th actually commemorates The Conversion of St Paul. A man who hated and persecuted Christians he was on his way to Damascus to seize the Christians there and bring them to Jerusalem for punishment when the famous conversion took place.
Changing his name from Saul to Paul after his conversion his writings and letters had a great influence on other people at the time and much later.
