The weather today

Transcript item

Joanna: So, blue sky, not a cloud in the sky today. Bright sunshine, but it's a little bit misty, little bit hazy, so we haven't got a very good view today.

Tina: It's really, really windy and pretty, pretty misty today. I need my big hat to keep me warm.

Kevan: Yesterday, it was snowing all day. It was cloudy and it was cold, it was about -1 or -2 degrees. But today we've got blue skies, the sun's out, it's a bit warmer. It's about 3 or 4 degrees and it's fantastic weather for snowboarding.

Kirk: It's a beautiful Saturday afternoon with a bright blue sky, though as you can see looking at the mountain of Montserrat there in the distance, it's also a bit hazy.

Joanna: The weather up here is windy and a little bit rainy, but there's a rainbow!

Joanne: So, it's a beautiful day today. The sun's shining and there's a lovely blue sky. It is a bit chilly, but, yeah, it's a lovely day.

Adam: It's March, spring! No! No, it isn't. It's cold and it's snowy. I mean, yeah, it's very pretty. I know, it's beautiful. Oh, but when's it going to be over?

Tina: It's a yucky day in the UK today. It's raining, it's windy, my hands are freezing, and I forgot my umbrella! Yuck!

Joanna: Today it's a beautiful day. The sky is really clear and it's sunny. But it's very cold, it was -1 when we started our little run this morning. But clear, blue skies and the sun is shining. Beautiful!

This picture was taken on my campus. The weather was a bit cloudy but mostly sunny. It was also very windy though you can't tell by just seeing the photo. From the vocabulary presented above, I could learn various ways to express the degree of coldness, such as chilly and freezing.

Hello !
The weather today in Marrakech is a bit hazy with a good sunrise.

Submitted by eRider on Thu, 13/04/2023 - 20:02


Hi there.
I've learned from this video the new word "hazy".
If I've understood correctly - it's a very light and thin mist, that is visible only at a long distance.
Now I know four grades of visibility:
foggy => misty => hazy => clear

Thanks eRider I learned about the differences between weather related terms :) Here in Lima, Peru we have a light blue sky, not hazy not misty even though our weather has a lot of humidity. The sun is not shining today as it was yesterday! But it is a nice fresh day.

You are welcome :)
I hope my explanation is correct.
What is the average temperature in Lima these days?

The weather these days s quite changeable here in Kyiv, Ukraine.
There were many rainy days. The soil became wet and softened. Because of that, I saw several fallen trees (see photo) in the park yesterday.
Today is a cloudy, boring day.

Hello everyone! Here in India the weather is so hot,it makes us sweating all day!

Hi vicky_4498 ✿

I went to India many years ago and remember it being super hot and we were always sweaty! How many seasons do you have in India. I remember there being a 'rainy' season or 'monsoon' season, but can't remember which months it was like that.

I've just been for a walk along the seafront and we had sun, rain, wind then hail in the space of an hour. It was nuts! 
Enjoy your day ...

today is very hot afternoon in Indonesia, especially Bandung. the temperature now is 29℃, usually it's not that high. It's cloudy and for those people who are going to go out don't forget to bring your umbrella.

Thanks for the tip about taking your umbrella deen!
I've just seen someone trying to use their umbrella in the pouring rain, I'm in the South East of England, and it was so windy the umbrella turned inside out!
What's the highest temperature it can get to in Bandung?

It's around11:30 p.m. in Japan. It has been raining since around noon. It's still so windy so not so warm at night. I hope we'll get the clear blue sky and warm spring day!

We've got the light blue sky and some clouds, but still little windy day.
Weather news said that it would be rainy in the afternoon but has not started raining yet.
