Additional information

1. погода is derived from the Old Slavonic form 'годъ (гід)' - 'time, year, feastday, convenient time'; this word, although it itself no longer exists in modern Ukrainian, has given rise to approximately 100 derivatives; although some are no longer used today, many continue to be present in the language; some of the words in frequent use are listed below (with their modern meanings)

2. weather forecasters in Ukraine are usually called 'синоптики'; this is related to 'synopsis', as it denotes those who provide a summary of the various weather conditions over a region at a given time.
