Up to the present days there exist lots of old Russian superstitious weather believes (otherwise called weatherlore). In former times Russian people trusted them implicitly and believed that they surely come true.
If clover`s leaves are brought together (become closer), it forecasts nasty weather. If dandelion`s flowers become closed, it forecasts rain. If it`s raining in the morning, the rain will soon cease. Loache`s flowers become closed before the rain; and if they become open in cloudy weather, it forecasts sunny days.
