What does coffee have to do with the weather?

What does coffee have to do with the weather?

According to weather lore, coffee supposedly can foretell what type of weather is in store for you. There is a belief that if the bubbles of coffee collect in the center of your cup, you can expect fair weather. If they adhere to the cup, forming a ring, you should expect rain. If they separate without assuming any fixed pattern, changeable weather should be on its way.

In my role as Editor of Farmers’ Almanac, I have come across a lot of folklore and interesting suggestions on ways to predict the weather! This one I must say is one of the more interesting ones, but it’s worth a try (especially as an experiment with kids).

Next time you pour yourself a cup of coffee, look for bubbles. Then write down what you see and watch the weather. Let me know if you find this weather predicting formula to be accurate or not.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
