Never trust a July sky.

Never trust the sky in the month of July.

As July, so next January.

If the 1st of July be rainy weather, it will rain more or less for three weeks together.

If ant hills are high in July, the coming winter will be hard.

Whatever July and August do not boil, September can not fry.

No tempest, good July,
Lest the corn look ruely.

Corn should be knee-high by the Fourth of July.
