Roots

Anglo-Saxon scur is akin to German Schauer (shower, squall). The Indo-European base is believed to be (s)qeu, to cover over; the given Indo-European “root” is kewero (north, north wind - as in SCOUR). S[I]eeYER or SiGHeeYR is a "shower" (Deuteronomy32:2).  Samekh-Ayin-Resh, $aGHahR, is to storm (Jonah 1:11), and $’GHaRaH is a tempest in Iisaiah 40:24 – see SQUALL. .

For SK cover terms see SHACK.


Branches

ZaR(ZeeYF) is a shower in Psalms72:6. SHaQaH is to water – see   SOAK.

Japanese reverses this SR with arashi (storm, tempest).
