    According to folk lure a mild winter is ahead when the woolly bear has a wide brown band. Check out the hub I wrote about weather predictions.  http://diana-lee.hubpages.com/hub/FOLKL … REDICTIONS

    The woolly worm festival is just taking place today and tomorrow in Banner Elk, North Carolina. This one worm will predict the weather conditions for the winter of 2014. It is said that if the worm has a wide/broad brown band around its body we will have a bad winter. Depending on the size of the band is what determines the severity of the upcoming winter.

    I love these little worms.  We have them in abundance here.  They are so soft.  They curl up when you put them in your hand.  I didn't know that they could predict weather.  I always thought that a large amount of fallen acorns meant a heavy winter! LOL

    It is folklore and there are two ways.
    One way is that it is similar to the way of the groundhog.
    The other way is by the amount of black which is it shows, but one species may have black at each end while another species may have black stripes from end to end.
