AMAZING WEATHER FACT - Can the temperature be estimated by a cricket's chirp?Strangely enough Yes ! Chirping crickets can provide a rather close indication of the air temperature. Begin by counting the number of cricket chirps in a 14-second period, then add forty. The total will equal the air temperature (in Fahrenheit) within one degree three out of four times.
