ANSWER: To see the rainbow, we must face the falling rain with the sun at our backs. When we see a rainbow in the evening, we are facing east toward the rainshower. Behind us—in the west—it is usually clear, or at least clear enough for sunlight to reach the showers. Because clouds tend to move from west to east in middle latitudes, the clear skies in the west suggest that the showers will give way to clearing. However, when we see a rainbow in the morning, we are facing west, toward the rainshower. It is a good bet that the clouds and showers will move toward us and it will rain soon. These observations explain why this weather rhyme became popular.
