Hello , I am from Medellín , Colombia but I live in Lima . Here the weather is forever cloudy and gray. Only in the summer ( january , february and march ) is sunny. Some days are drizzle and floor is wet . The months colders are june and July. The weather is very humid. A curious data never rain in Lima only drizzle but not more. The sunset in summer is beautiful and amazing

Sorry, I fail one sentence : "...but the temperature is not changeable."

Hello Mamo19,

We often describe the weather as changeable but we don't usually use the word to describe temperature.

Repeatedly, we consider having one season in Haïti : the sunny one. Perhaps from June to December we are under cyclone threat which could be a raining time, and that could be called the worst season. That doesn't mean we could not have one or more raining day (s) at any time ; nut the temperature in sot changeable.
In Summer it is very hot time (less than 30 °C a day) while in December it's cold (about 20°C a day).
To summarize almost the whole year maintain great temperature. It's the reason why lots of foreign people love this country.

In Russia, actually, the weather is depend on the region. In Krasnodar, for example, the weather is hot mostly. Black sea coast is the main resort of Russia with very hot summer, warm sea and so on. And, there is the Verkhoyansk on the other side of the country. It is the coldest city in the world. The temperature can go down to minus 67 C there (I've never been there actually). I think, in St. Petersburg the weather is as changeable as in Britain. In a whole, in the centre of Russia, the weather is very different depending on the season. The temperature can vary from + 30 in summer to - 30 in winter. There is a lot of snow in the winter, and it's very cool. But I suppose Russians in the central Russia and especially on the North of the Country don't have enough sundays.
Please, don't be shy to point me to mistakes. Thank you very much.

I live in Vietnam and the weather here is different between the north and the south of my country. We have 4 seasons in the north: spring, summer, autumn and winter while there is two clear seasons in the south: dry and rainy season. I grew up in Southwest of Vietnam where belongs to Mekong Delta area, so we have a typical season is the flood season. It begins from June to November annual. To most of people, flood seems not to be an expected thing but the farmers in my hometown treasure it much. It brings fishes, shrimps and alluvial soil to this land. I love the seasonal transition when I can feel the change of people and natural landscape clearly. This time is in rainy season so you can see all type of rain such as heavy, drizzle, pour, spit even iced rain but it's fairly rare

The weather in my country change in every city . in the north of my country the climate is temperate it usually rainy and it can has hot summers but it usually mild and lovely.
In the south of my country the weather is hot and it rearly rains . in deserts the weather is hot by days and cold by nights.
in some part of west and east and north of my country the weather is cold and snowy in winters. but in my city weather is dry it rearly snowy and most of the year it is sunny or cloudy and sometimes rainy

I live in the north of Italy, here the winter is cold and damp, and the summer is very hot. The best season is the spring, specially May and June the weather is mild and there are many flowers. But if you go in the Alps the winter is very cold and snowing and the summer is fantastic, with mild weather.

The climate is mild in my region of my country. Winter is not very cold and summer is quite warm. But my country is so extensive, that in the Northeast it is very warm, subtropical; in the Northwest it is a mountain climate, dry and cold; and in the South it can be extremely cold, with snow and icy wind, like in our Antarctic.

The weather changes a lot in Bogota, COLOMBIA, In the same day do you have a bright sun and a cold rain. It’s very important that you wear all climate clothes. The cold temperatur could be 6 Celsius degrees and the hottest 23 Celsius degrees. I think that the weather is very similar to London
