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 like Wet weather because, while sunny weather could cause dry leaves which are not beautiful to behold and also heat waves, wet weather keeps environment colorful and green with favorable temperatures.

I prefer winters as it's very pleasant here on India. We generally have 6 months of summer season and 3 months of monsoon. Winters here is dry and moderate.

Nature is not an object opposed to human and to be overcome, but one that we adapt ourselves to. ;)

i like especially when its sunny outside because i like t bo warm and eat ice cream and bath. i also like when its snowing outside and when you can go skiing and drink warm chocolate, I hate fall because I hate when its grey, boring, and when the leaves are falling from the trees and loses the beautiful color green.
