I tend to watch "nature" for clues to weather to come. Some consider it folk lore, but often times, it is "right on".
I have often found nature is more reliable than the TV forecast prophets.
Location is near Clearwater, Florida. This year I noticed that the squirrels had stripped all of the pine cones from the trees by the first week of October. Also, the squirrels nests became so heavy with hoarding that several have fallen out of the tree tops now.
The wooly worm is also supposed to be an indicator of the severity of the coming winter months and it is determined by the color of it's coat of bristles. I haven't seen one yet...so I can't say.
Should a goose's breastbone be hard to obtain observe the moss growing on any nearby tree: the more moss on the south side of the tree the harder the coming winter. One can also watch squirrels burying their nuts: the deeper they bury them the lower the lowest temperature will be for the upcoming winter. Fruit trees blooming twice in one year are a certain sign the winter will be severe, and when rabbits habitually take shelter in brush piles a severe winter is assured.
