Whether the Weather's Fine. . . and other rhymes

See if you can finish this.
Whether the weather's fine. . .

Standing in line at Safeway this morning with a perfect stranger and struck up a conversation about -- what else -- the weather.
"That was quite the rain we had this morning.  Thought it was going to rain all day."
"Ha." I smiled.  "My mother had this saying.  'If it rains before Seven it will shine by Eleven.'  It's always true."

(Clouds Over the Ocean, by Etsy seller Dream ON)

But I'm curious. Is it always true?  What has been your experience?  And, do you know any maxims regarding the weather?

My mother taught me another one.
Red sky at night, Sailor's delight.
Red sky in morning, Sailors take warning. 

Now for the rest of that rhyme we started with.
Whether the weather's fine
Whether the weather's not
We'll weather the weather
Whatever the weather
Whether we like it or not. 

Happy Tuesday.
Can't wait to hear yours!
