The patterns of natural phenomena, identified as a result of many years of observation by our ancestors, eventually turned into folk omens. By the behavior of animals and birds, as well as other signs, it was possible to find out the nature of the weather in the near future or the season ahead. Numerous signs of nature prediction are plausible today. Knowing them, you can predict planting or harvesting, prepare for the impending bad weather, especially away from home and settlements.

Local weather prediction
Despite the fact that the climate and natural phenomena have changed over several decades, and, moreover, centuries, many national signs still help to reliably know the weather for the next hours, days, months. Local weather prediction is based on observations of natural phenomena, celestial bodies.
So, clear, warm weather means the following signs:
- Cumulus clouds
- Gray morning sky
- The dawn is golden in the evening, and the sky is clear.
In winter, harbingers of a clear day will be: blue morning sky, morning frost on the trees, fast-running clouds across the sky. Thick snow with large flakes also means it will get warmer soon. But the fine snow, low clouds in the afternoon, means a long cooling.
On bad weather, rainy weather indicate such signs:
The snowless winter is foreshadowed by the rapid autumn leaf fall. Summer will be short and rainy if birch exudes a lot of sap, and dandelions began to bloom in early spring. Oak, bird cherry blossoms to cold weather, frost. If the oak turns green before ash, short rains with cooling will begin, and if, on the contrary, prolonged heavy rains begin.
