The Intercession of the Theotokos (Orthodox feast – translator’s note), which will come next Sunday, October 14, promises to be sunny and warm in Ukraine, fresh at night, with luxurious morning mists and a clear bright day, with asters, dahlias, rowan, frost flower, still green grass and yellow leaves.
They say that the Intercession is celebrated, when the Mother of God covered, defended Constantinople from the Kyiv troops of Askold. And Askold himself was so imbued with this miracle that he was baptized with the soldiers.
Our Cossacks especially honored this holiday, in the new Sich camp they first built the Intercession church, went on hikes with the icon of the Intercession of the Theotokos, and it was on the Intercession that they chose a new leader.
We also celebrate Cossacks Day on the Intercession of the Theotokos. This day is wonderful because of Ukrainian weddings, which became mass. The girls said – “Holy Mother Theotokos, cover my head, even with a rag, so that I will not remain a girl”.
And also, October 14 is special for all modern Ukrainians, because we celebrate the Day of Defender of Ukraine and thank all the soldiers for protecting Ukraine and Ukrainians from the enemy.
Therefore, let me remind you once again that on the Intercession of the Theotokos wonderful weather is expected in Ukraine ‒ sunny and warm, with an air temperature of +14 +19 degrees in the west, and in the southern part +17 +22 degrees.
From October 11 until the end of the week, as well as from Monday, October 15 and until the middle of the next week, the synoptic situation in Ukraine will not change significantly.
The weather of all regions will be determined by the scale area of high atmospheric pressure, the anticyclone named Victor.
This means that dry air mass will reign, without precipitation.
Autumn and anticyclone contribute to the emergence of fogs.
At night and in the morning there are fogs and haze that will worsen visibility on the roads. Therefore, drivers in this period of time should be especially careful.
Light wind and fog provoke deterioration of the ecological situation in large cities, when products of combustion, harmful impurities accumulate, hang in the air.
The air temperature will vary between 4-10 degrees Celsius at night, in the south to 7-14 degrees Celsius.
When clearing and cooling of the air, in the lowlands and in the Carpathians, slight frosts are possible in places.
During the day, the thermometer will show a comfortable air temperature, it is expected +14 +19 degrees in the west of Ukraine, and +17 +23 degrees in the southern part.
Wind will be observed in eastern directions, from the northeast to the southeast.
In Kyiv, in the coming days, from October 11 till the Intercession of the Theotokos, and in the first half of next week, dry cloudy weather is expected. Rain is unlikely, there will be a lot of sun.
At night and in the morning fogs and haze are possible.
The air temperature in the capital is expected within +4 +9 degrees at night, and +14 +18 degrees in the daytime.
October gives us a real “Indian summer”, wonderful holidays, many opportunities to think, work, relax, brings us luxurious weather and fabulous nature around.
We accept his selfless gifts with gratitude.
