A similar comparison can be made for the amount of rain and wind; more rain and wind means more burglaries (more wind: 25% more burglaries, more rain: 30% more).Violence takes mainly place when the weather is sunny and hot. The more clouds there are, the less violence takes place. Public drunkenness takes mainly place at cold weather (25% more compared to hot temperatures) and/or at a high air pressure.
