Your favourite weather

Father and son at the beach


We asked people about their favourite weather and how it makes them feel. Here's what they said.

I grew up in Vermont, USA, where we had winter weather from October to April, and temperatures could reach -35 degrees. Now that I live near Barcelona, I don't miss such long winters or such extreme cold, but neither do I like the long, hot and muggy summer weather we have here. My favourite weather is moderately sunny or partly cloudy skies with cool temperatures at night and warm ones during the day. I think it's because I love being outside, and this is the most comfortable weather for that.

I'm from Cornwall, in south-west England, and the weather there is amazing as it's full of surprises. You can have 'four seasons in one day' sometimes, as it's really changeable. You can wake up in the rain, then have a few hours of sunshine and then it goes cloudy and wet again. You just never know what's next! But the best thing about Cornish weather is the wind. There's nothing better than walking on the cliffs and having the fresh air blow in from the Atlantic. It's really refreshing. I also even quite enjoy mizzle, which is a local word to describe the combination of mist and drizzle. 

This might be a bit unusual, but I really like cold weather! I like wrapping up warm with a thick coat, scarf, hat and boots, and seeing my breath condense in the air. I like sipping hot chocolate to warm up. It is exciting to look out of the window in the morning and see a carpet of snow on the ground from an overnight snowfall. It makes me feel happy and nostalgic.

This is pure nostalgia, but I miss snow! I remember that magical feeling as a child, watching white flakes falling from the sky. It was the best thing that could possibly happen on a school day. You open the curtains in the morning and find everything covered in white. When it doesn't happen often, it's so exciting, beautiful and different. And you just know that normal life is cancelled for the day.

I do love partly sunny weather. It makes me feel good.

I like when the sun is shining outside, but I don't like warm temperatures. I am more used to the cold since I lived in Norway when I was younger. I really enjoyed the winters there, full of snow. I actually prefer colder temperatures cause you can just wrap yourself up in cosy sweaters or drink heart-warming beverages, which for me is just so magical.

Hello, i am from india.
Today weather is my favourite because its not hot day day or rainy day. Its like magic in this month cloudy day with cool air blowing slowly with some rain in morning after weather is lovely and its good for 😴sleeping.

Hi every one. I am from Vladik which is located on the South of Russia. We had rainy days most of all. I recently have moved to the city. Now that I live in Stav I am not missing such as dampness, but neither do I like hot and muggy weather we have here. My favorite weather is moderately sunny or partly cloudy days. Most of all I like August. The best thing about this summer month is the wind. There is nothing better than hiking in the forest and having fresh air blow.

I live in the North of Vietnam, at the time transfer from winter to spring, the weather is not really pretty. Humidity is so high, it's misty, rainy, wet all days long. Even the floor, the wall of house is sweaty. It's difficult to have activities outside. And I quite don't like this time of the year.

I was brought up in the north of Spain, the green part of the country, and now i'm living in Brussels where the weather is similar to the one i knew in my hometown. But for me, the best weather is the one i had when i was living in the Canary Islands: warm spring all along the year. No cold winter, no hot summer.

For me I like chilly weather but not too extreme conditions. I enjoy the feeling of not getting sweaty. The downside part is when you have a deadline at work, this will make you sleepy.

I just love rainy days! In my country, we usually have "Tortas Fritas" on a rainy day, which are delicious!!! But I also like to have "Arroz con Leche" which is rice cooked with milk. It makes me feel so full that I usually take a nap after that. I also enjoy reading or doing some indoor activities like painting or drawing. These days make me so nostalgic!

I make me feel better the mild weather because I dislike the cold and the heat. In Buenos Aires It is very difficult because the weather isn't very nice.

Warm but a little windy day in the beginning of Autum is my favorite weather.
The wind carry the sweet smell of the flowers of Orange fragrant olive everywhere around us. We can enjoy the wonderful smell even if we are inside when we open windows. I really enjoy keeping on paddling the pedals of my bike smelling the flowers. So, I definitely need a little wind in the season!

My favorite weather is a mixture of clouds and sun, because I love sunny days but not the high temperatures. Additionally, I also enjoy seeing the rain from time to time.

I'm from Mariupol (Ukraine). It's situated on the Azov Sea and is temporarily occupied. For me, the best weather is warm summer days, near the sea, from which a light fresh wind always blows and this feeling of sea salt in the air. Wherever I am, I always see my Azov Sea on the horizon and it seems to me that I can smell it.

Hello Halyna,

The weather you describe as your favourite sounds wonderful.

Best wishes to you and everyone everywhere in such a difficult situation,

Nowadays, spring is in the full. The weather is awesome due to the rainy season and cool breeze blowing around. The weather really turns my mood on, some times I feel like I should be with some I love. The weather has a very big impact on my mood. I like the winter and spring seasons. there is no sweating in these seasons. Mostly, the sky is dark and cloudy in these seasons.

Hello everyone,
I m from Comoros, little islands between Madagascar and Africa. Here, we have two seasons, the warm and wet season and the cold and dry one. My favorite is the warm and wet season since during that period, it's sunny and warm. Actually i crave warm temperatures even if it's raining. I don't like cold. When it's chilly here, i can't sleep well and i catch the flu. I love also hearing the thunder and the wind within, though it's during that season when may take place cyclones. Madagascar is victim of many of these, I don't know if we can be used to such a phenomenon but i guess they should surrender as weather is matter of fate. Anyway, when it's warm, beaches are mostly crowded.

Hi there, I am living in air front. It`s Mongolia. We have a four season. So our winter is too cold. Sometimes it reaches -40 and average temperature is -30 in the middle of the winter. Spring has almost every winter in a day and windy. Summer and autumn are so nice. Our country has not a humid air, it is almost dry. So summer days are not like in the tropical sweltering weather. It`s more pleasant for us. Sunny, drizzly, rainy and hazy days of the summer are all nice. Most attractiveness is that all the rivers and lakes are flowing. I like swimming in the river and lake, that`s why I like the summer. Then, fall seems like mature. We can see so many colors in the fall. When I see fall, I always think about human life.

When I lived in Vermont, the fall was my favorite season too, I suppose because of all the colors, and, as you say, it made me think about life. Here in Spain it's not as impressive, but the spring is amazing with all the flowers.

I'm from Alexandria, in Egypt, and the weather there is amazing. where we had winter weather from November to March, and temperatures reach 7 degrees. You can have four seasons in one day. We run in the rain, then have a few hours of wind and then it goes cloudy and rains again. You can’t expect what will happen. There's nothing better than walking in the rain with a cup of Ice Cream and having the fresh air from the Mediterranean sea. It's amazing.

Good Afternoon everyone,

We have four seasons, here, in my country namely Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn. The weather temperatures remain moderate during Spring and Autumn which makes them my favorite seasons.
Except for the insects that comes out of their wholes, Spring is, perhaps, my most favorite season. Unlike Autumn, in spring the plants and trees blossom flowers, which makes this season even more beautiful.
I also had the opportunity to spend five years in a tropical country. The good thing about the weather over there, was that you don't have extreme temperatures in Summers and Winters. The down side was that one gets easily bored of the unending sunny rainy duo round the year.
Anyway, since I am back to my home country and it is Spring season here so I am very happy these days.

I am from Turkiye. I really enjoy fall and spring seasons. The weather is always great to go out without coats. I like the way how it is chilly and sometimes mizzling in the mornings. Also, what i really enjoy about these seasons is so fun to watch the nature. Nowadays, these two seasons are so short, so i always try to go out and have fun when the wheather is like that.

Hi, I'm Nisa from Indonesia. Unfortunately, in Indonesia we only has two seasons, summer and rain. I don't like both of them. When it's summer, it's so hot to handle at day or at night. I also don't like rainy day because it can cause the flood sometimes. I hope I can see what snow day looks like someday.

Hi Nisa,

I am Pakistan. I have spent five years in mainland Malaysia, a tropical country like Indonesia. I also have few Indonesian friends which I met in Malaysia. The best things about tropical weather is that you don't have extreme temperatures. The down side, for people like us, is that we get bore easily from the sunny rainy duo round the year.
In my experience, the people of Indonesia are cool minded and awesome.

I am from Indonesia, a tropical country with hot temperatures throughout the year. I was born and raised there. So, I have experienced how the hot weather was.
Now, I am living in England, a four seasons country. What I love pretty much about the season is spring. In spring, we can see everything is blooming, the trees are getting green, and the temperatures are cool. We have lots of sunlight makes us feel more energized.
But England has unexpected weather. We sometimes have four seasons in a day. In the morning, it is a bit hazy, and it is rainy in the afternoon, or windy, as well as sunshine.

I live in a tropical country where it is either sunny or rainy. What i fancy most is the feeling I have whenever it just rained.
When the sky turned from grey to silver with patches of gold as sunshine pierced through the evaporating clouds. This is also the best time to smell the grass and breath cool air.

Hi there, Topsydyla. I also live in a tropical country and I know what you mean when you say you love the feeling when it has just rained. By the waym where are you from? I'm from Brazil. Best regards! Olegario

I am not keen on cold weather, and my favourite weather is soft but warm climate, not too hot.
I agree with Jo: "There's nothing better than walking on the cliffs and having the fresh air blow in from the Atlantic".
I prefer the sea and the mild temperatures by the seaside.
So, could this kind of climate like anyone from the team?

For me it really depends on just how warm it is. I like warm weather, but for me anything above about 28 is hot. It's fine for a few hours a day, but when it's most of the day, I don't enjoy it. Actually, the worst is when the temperature doesn't drop below 25 or so at night -- I find that really unpleasant.
