Groundhog shadows, farmers almanacs, tingling injuries, and rings around celestial objects have all been used to predict the weather. In this segment, host April Sorrow speaks to Dr. John Knox about how accurate these old tricks are at predicting the weather and what it really means when the weather report says “20% chance of rain.” Dr. Knox is an associate professor of geography and current representative of Clarke County’s District 8 on the Board of Education.
