29. How to Predict the Weather
When considering ways to survive when lost in the middle of nowhere, the weather will play a huge factor in literally everything. This is good to know for things like traveling or staying put, as well as when to stop and rest. Did you know you can predict when certain weather comes by just looking up?
To safely predict if rain or snow is coming within a 24 to 36 hour period, look for a halo caused by the refraction of light by ice crystals in the cirrus clouds. If this halo is broken, the broken side will point right to the direction of an incoming storm. If there isn’t anything to worry about, you’re good. Especially if the break is not pointing your direction.
