Transcript

Hello and good morning! Well, we're off to a good start in the south this week, as most of the rain from the weekend has disappeared – just a few patches of cloud and maybe some showers here on the east coast. They'll all clear up by lunchtime, though. Over the next day or so, London and the area around Kent can expect a couple of isolated showers, but mostly dry through until Thursday.

It's not such good news for the north-west this week, I'm afraid: more wet weather, and not a lot of sunshine. Some of today's showers will be heavy – and even thundery in Manchester and across the Pennines. Leeds will escape the thunderstorms, with drizzle and light rain only throughout the rest of the day and tonight.

Elsewhere it becomes dry today, but with some foggy patches towards Wales. In England, tomorrow morning will see a dry, bright start in most places, with high temperatures throughout the week. We might see one or two thunderstorms appearing as the week goes on, with temperatures everywhere at 29 to 30 degrees. 

By the weekend, unfortunately, the dry weather will make way for mostly cloudy skies and rain. The rain will move from Scotland, down towards the north and reach the south coast by Saturday afternoon. Temperatures, at least, will stay mostly warm at around 21 degrees for the weekend. It might feel like a nice change from the high twenties and early thirties we'll see in the week. That's all from me until tomorrow. Enjoy the mini-heatwave while you can!

Me, either! Because I don't feel uncomfortable to wear a mask on sunny days and I don't need to feel irritated when I wear a mask. I also like some autumn events. Autumn is the season for sports, reading, the arts, and eating. I really like to chill out under the clear autumn sky which brings a full of joy.

Everything you need to know about my favorite weather - I love summer. I like warm sunny days and even hot days are acceptable. You always can find shady places under the tree or stay home at the heat time. And even you become sweaty you can take a shower to refresh yourself. But, you don't need to put on tons of clothes to warm oneself, there isn't any mud or slush on the streets. The days are long, birds are singing, everything is green and colorful. Flowers, rainbow, freshen rains, and perfect mood. This is the time of the year I like the best!

it depends on, But my favorite season is fall, it is windy and rainy, it is a dreamly weather that you can go walking on the road, go to park or jungle, go mountain, you can sniff a smell of wet soil and also you see patches of cloud on the sky, generally it is an outlook so beautiful and gripping.

Once in a while, I enjoy gloomy weather in which I become somewhere theoretical. ;) But overall, I like clear and sunny weather! Definitely!
