Did you know that your morning cup of coffee can help you predict rain? It’s a trick used by backpackers that can come in handy you’re shooting outdoors without Internet: pour a cup of coffee and carefully watch the bubbles. If they quickly move to the edge of the cup, you can expect clear skies for the next 12 hours. If they stay around in the center of the cup, get ready for some rain within that time period. If they slowly move to the edge, you’ll probably see scattered showers. To make new bubbles, simply lift up a spoonful of coffee and pour it back into the cup.
