    The old 'equinoctial storm' issue.

    They always come, but sometimes are delayed by as much as a month, or arrive earlier.    One of these days, I'll figure that one out.

    There was a solid belief through the middle of the 19th century that the Moon influenced the weather. In particular, it was widely believed that the weather would change at Full Moon and New Moon (together known as the "change" of the Moon). I found another example of this today. It's in "Memoirs: comprising the Navigation to and from China, by the China Sea" written by J. Horsburgh and published in London in 1805. The author wrote of the frequency of typhoons that "near the equinox in September appears to be the most precarious time, and the more so, if the change or perigee of the Moon coincides with the equinox." It's not true, of course.
