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!

I live in a country while weather is normal, that means sunny in the summer and rainy in winter, so I don't care a lot but I can say that I prefer when it's sunny with  bright light, because that weather let us do more activities comparing when it's rain

For me, foggy cold weather is the best because you don't sweat and you can walk outside for a long time without getting sunburn or sunstroke.

What kind of weather do you like best? I live in a country with high temperatures, so I prefer cold weather. For me, it's easier to deal with cold weather than hot weather, but I suppose if I lived in a cold country, I would say that hot weather is the best. It all depends on the country in which you live and how you deal with the weather.

I like when it is sunny with a gentle breeze as it here during the Spring. In these days I can take some exercises outdoor and the light of the sun makes me feel happier and at the same time help us to make our bones stronger because of the better interaction between vitamine D and calcium.

I love cold weather, I like it a lot when it rains and the air is humid. I hate summer, on the other hand, I just can't stand temperatures above 25° Celsius.

I am fond of cold weather. Because it helps me refresh my mind and concentrate more on studying.
