Should we rely on the ‘irwiegel’ to forecast the weather?

The ‘irwiegel’, as they are referred to in Malta, are the twelve days before Christmas, precisely between the 13th and the 24th of December, and these twelve days represent every month of the following year.

Samuel Cutajar, a weather expert and enthusiast,  stated this morning on TVAM that there are many who split up the irwiegel into two or four parts of the day.

Cutajar gave as an example that if the weather is good in the morning, it is believed that the first half of the comparable month will be equally good in terms of weather, whereas if the weather turns foul in the afternoon, the second half of that same month will be subject to inclement weather.

What did Cutajar have to say when asked whether the irwiegel are relevant to weather forecasting?
