Weather Expressions

What are your favourite weather expressions?

When I was a kid we had a Newfie neighbour for a while, and when it would get cold he would exclaim, "it's cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey!"

One expression like is the old Scandinavian proverb that in Finish reads as "Det finns inget dåligt väder, bara dåliga kläder!" or in Norwegian as, "Det finnes ikke dårlig vær, bare dårlig klær!"

In English it reads as: There's no such thing as bad weather, just inappropriate clothing.

How about "it's mighty nippley outside" or "it's raining cats and dog's"

It's so cold I saw a politician with his hands in his OWN pockets.
