Reptiles, Amphibians, and Nematodes (Worms) Weather Predictors

For centuries, insects have been used to foretell weather. Here is a selection of of those observations.

  • Large numbers of toads crawling out of their holes indicates rain coming. 

  • Warbling frogs sing rain approaching.


  • Frogs singing in a cold rain are singing that warm weather approaches.


  • Tree frogs singing during a rain indicates the rain will continue.


  • Fog in the fall, no snow at all.

  • Snakes hunt before a rain, and disappear after.

  • Snakes and their trails can be found near houses before a rain.


  • Earthworms rise before a rain.
