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.
