The notion of a red sky at night being a shepherd’s (some say sailor’s) delight isn’t just an old wives’ tale. It has some basis in science and is a fairly reliable indicator of good weather. In the middle latitudes of the northern hemisphere, storm systems follow the jet stream from west to east. A red sky signals that the setting sun is transmitting its light through a high concentration of dust particles. This, in turn, indicates high air pressure and good weather coming in from the west.
