Word: сло́та
Near etymology: "слякоть", арханг. (Подв.), "мокрая погода с ветром и снегом", олонецк. (Кулик.), укр. сло́та́, сльота́ "мокрый снег, осеннее ненастье", блр. сло́та "слякоть", др.-русск., сербск.-цслав. слота "ненастье", болг. сло́та "град", сербохорв. сло̏та "дождливая погода", словен. slota, чеш., слвц. slota "непогода", польск. sɫota "мелкий дождь, изморозь".
Further etymology: Считают родственным лит. šáltas "холодный", šal̃tis м. "холод, мороз", šálti, šą̃lа "мерзнуть", лтш. sal̂ts "холодный", авест. sarǝta- "холодный", нов.-перс. serd -- то же (В. Шульце, Kl. Schr. 423; Эндзелин, СБЭ 40; Траутман, ВSW 298). Кроме того, сравнивают с норв. slatr ср. р., sletta ж. "дождь со снегом" (= *slattiôn), далее с греч. λάταξ, род. п. -αγος ж., λατάγη ж. "капля, остаток вина" (Торп 535; Вальде--Гофм. I, 770). Невероятно сближение с лит. slačiūkas "ленивый, сонный человек", slatyti, slatau "увиливать" (Отрембский, LР I, 142).
