What Do You Mean by the Term under the Weather Bow?

What Do You Mean by the Term under the Weather Bow?

When it’s gray and rainy out, does that affect how you feel? This expression comes from the idea that bad weather might hurt a person’s health and mood. It can also mean that a person is feeling sad or depressed.

The saying also may be related to “under the weather bow,” the part of a boat that will take the force of rough seas during stormy weather. If you were in that part of the boat, you might get seasick!
