MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) – Mid-South weather can be unpredictable at times, if only we had a magic ball to see into the future? Well a weather folklore states that all you need is a cup of coffee to predict the outcome of the days weather.
In this episode of the Breakdown, we explain why this folklore is not true and you morning cup of joe might not be the best forecaster.
The folklore tells you to look at the bubbles to see if it will rain or be a sunny day in the region. If the bubbles move to the center of the cup, then you are in high pressure, meaning that the surface convex of the coffee is in the middle. Bubbles are basically air, so they migrate to the highest point. Meaning it will be a beautiful day.
