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 cold weather because rain makes me feel sleepy and hungry

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.

I like the spring weather , when it is warm not very hot , the sky is clear blue and the green color is evry where arround us .

My favorite kind of weather is when it's sunny but not too much hot

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

its depends fom if it is summer or winter but if it si winter i like when it is sun shine whith litle snow faling

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.

I like the sun.

I like the rain, but only when I'm inside, I really like watching the rain outside from out the window. On the other hand, I like it sunny and hot when I'm outside.

when its sunny cuz u can go swimming
