I remember an old saying my mom used to say:

Red sky at night, sailors delight; red sky n the morning, sailors take warning.

That saying is actually true. I’m an avid boater and we spend a lot of time in the Washington San Juan Islands. Red sky at night means the next day will be clear (no stroms), red sky in morning means a storm approaching).
