Speaking about the weather is something we often do. So knowing how to talk about atmospheric conditions (weather) is a great way to start a conversation with any native English speaker. With spring just around the corner, let’s learn how to describe the weather this season.
The weather in spring can be changeable. From March, the temperature starts to get warmer and the days start to get longer. However, it often rains and can get windy in Britain.
Here are some words you might like to learn:
A breeze is a soft and gentle wind.
Today it’s a beautiful day with a blue sky and a gentle breeze.
You probably take a shower every morning, but in weather, a shower is light rain for a short period of time.
You don’t really need an umbrella today –a few light showers are forecast.
A shower is a light rain but a drizzle is even lighter.
On our walk around Cardiff, it was drizzling, but it wasn’t a problem.
Once all the rain is done, you are left with puddles. Puddles are small pools of water on the ground.
Children had fun jumping in the puddles.
An arch (=curved shape) of different colours seen in the sky when rain is falling and the sun is shining.
The sun came out and we saw a beautiful rainbow in the sky.
When something was made warm by the sun, you can just say it was sun-kissed—kissed by the sun. It might be a patch of grass, or even someone who has a nice tan.
She came back from Spain. Her skin looks sun-kissed now.
