HI !!! I'm from Myanmar. Myanmar doesn't like any other countries, it has only three seasons, the hot season, the rainy season and the cold season. It's simple the hot season is hot and the rainy season rains a lot and the cold season is very cold but since a century ago, the climate has changed a lot. In the hot season, the weather wasn't very hot but now the temperature reaches 42 degrees at most and 36 degrees at least. In rainy season, it rained a lot but now it rains very few. And the cold season, the weather was cold not very cold but now it is also hot in the cold season, the temperature reaches 32 degrees at most and 26 degrees at least, that temperature can't be say cold, isn't it? So I want to say is that is usually hot and not cold in all three seasons. It's global warming.

The climate was changed in Ukraine during last 10 years. Summer became hot and winter became warmer than earlier. Autumn became longer, drier and warmer, but spring became shorter. There was very snowy in winter, but now the first snow can appear only in January.

I am Egyptian but I live in Saudi Arabia . You know , the deserts covered many areas in Saudi Arabia so the climate here is sunny and very high temperature often months in the year and dry with low temperature in the winter.

The weather in the country where I live(Uruguay) changes according to the seasons, in the winter the weather is cold but rarely freezing, the average temperature for that season is 5-18 °C but depends on the year, tough. In the summer is quite hot most of the days, the average temperature is about 28°C but this year we already had some days with 35°C, although it could not be very high for most of the tropical countries, I think is really hot for this part of the globe. Then we have the seasons I like the most, spring and autumn, in spring here the average temperatures generally are between 20-25°C but there is a lot of wind so it's feel nice. In autumn there is more wind and is a bit more cold than spring but not too much to be outside, so it's feels nice to. Despite all that we also can have an angry sky, cold, wind and sun in the same day at different hours in spring and autumn.

Thanks for the episode.

In my country, the climate is desert.
The best time of year is spring, when the weather is temperate.
The temperature on a hot day reaches 48
And on cold days it reaches 10 or less

In summer is very hot reach about 45 and gradually coming back in September during that sometimes it's raining in mountain area because of vapuor sea ,so it goes to there. In winter is temperate weather mostly reach in cities about 25 celecious in midday and 15 in the midnight . Normally it's raining in January and February but it depends every year. In other hand South county exactly salalah city has mosean during summer so it's dizzul three months .

Hi everyone, I am Gil. from São Paulo, Brazil. We have four seasons per day here. Now, we are living an extremely hot season, for me the best time of the year is the winter, I prefer to use jackets and walking in the streets when the weather is colder.

I am from Oman and the weather here is really hot all the year, so the worst time in the year is in summer. We can't go out because of the extreme hot. the temperature reaches about 39. While in the winter, the weather comes very cold and for me it's the best time in the year and the temperature reaches 7.

Actually it's reach 50 some days in July . Otherwise it depends on which part of our country .

Hi everybody!

I came from Warsaw in Poland. There have been 4 seasons before climate changed. I remember the snow in the mountains on the South of country in winter. I remember frozen in Warsaw 25 years ago. I was ice skating in the park when I have been child.

Now weather is hotter there. Of course in the mountains are ski resorts and runs in the winter but sometimes they have to use a fake snow.

In the summer temperature reaches 30-40 degrees of Celsius. In 2016 was heat weather through three mount from June to August. It was nightmare, 35-36 degrees everyday in Warsaw. I looked for the shadow on the streets.

I does not like the heat, my favourite weather is 25 degrees in summer and my favourite season is spring. There is short spring now, cold turns into hot quickly. I like weather in London, changeable is better idea. I love long Sprig here and frequency sunny days.
