Meteoblog of the country’s chief weather forecaster

December rapidly broke into Ukraine with frosts and snowfalls. However, the atmosphere, like a big cat with its paw, immediately calmed down the winter firstborn. The thaw immediately followed the frost. But December, as a really naughty child, again escaped from atmospheric guard.

On December 6 and 7, a slight decrease in the air temperature is expected in Ukraine.

At night, the thermometers gradually descend from 0-5 degrees above zero to 5-10 degrees below zero. On Thursday, during the day, it is expected from 4 degrees below zero to 2 degrees above zero, on Friday ‒ 0-5 degrees of frost.

Precipitation on December 6 will take place in the east of Ukraine, it will rain mostly due to the domination of the thaw.

It’ll be snowing in the eastern and in the western regions on December 7.

In most areas, significant precipitation is unlikely.

On December 8 and 9, the thaw will visit Ukraine again, that is, another warming up to +3 degrees is expected. Only on Saturday night, the air will be still frosty, -4 -10 degrees.

During Saturday and Sunday, the atmospheric front will cross Ukraine from west to east. It will cause sleet, rain, and ice that will obstruct traffic.

In the western part, synoptic discomfort will be aggravated by a gale-force wind with gusts of up to 15-20 meters per second.

You need to be especially careful in the Carpathians, as precipitation, warming and strong winds can provoke avalanches.

The first half of the next week promises relatively warm but wet weather in Ukraine.

On December 11-12 a cyclone rushes to us from the southwestern part of Europe. This atmospheric vortex, along with the accompanying atmospheric fronts, will make the weather more difficult in most areas.

On Tuesday, the first cyclonic “blow” will take place in the southern part, the central and eastern regions ‒ strong precipitation, wet snow, ice, storm winds are expected.

Check the weather forecast when planning a car trip on December 11-12.

On Wednesday, the cyclone will move in the northern direction and will cover a significant part of Ukraine, except for the eastern regions.

Snowfalls, sometimes rain, ice on the roads, wind gusts can reach 15-20 meters per second.

The temperature of the air will not undergo any special changes, at night it will fluctuate within -3 ‒ +4, and the thaw will prevail during the day.

In Kyiv, the end of the week and the beginning of the next dominate wet weather.

On December 6 and 7, the air temperature will decrease to little frosts during the day and moderate at night.

On December 8-9, a thaw will come to the capital again, the thermometers will fluctuate around zero or within 0-2 degrees above zero.

On Monday, significant precipitation is unlikely, and already from the second half of December 11 and December 12, Kyiv will be under the influence of the southern cyclone.

The sleet, in some places with rain, gusty wind and ice on the roads and sidewalks are expected.

On Thursday, December 13, on Andrew the Apostle Feast, the bad weather in Kyiv will subside.

Young December has fun with cyclones, atmospheric pressure jumps, atmospheric fronts, is laughing at us and play tricks on slippery ice. Baby, what can I say?

Therefore, in the coming days, warm shoes, waterproof clothing, shawls up to the ears, preventive measures for cardiovascular and broncho-pulmonary diseases will be relevant.

As well as a warm tea, hot coffee, cosy gatherings, bright summer memories and more bright colours around.

Winter is gaining momentum.
