The Weather in English

There are many adjectives you can use for describing the weather in daily life. Some of them are very similar in meaning (hot and warm) and a little harder to distinguish, while others are completely different (rainy and sunny) and easier to remember. In addition to learning these terms, you should consider practicing them often.


Hot / Warm

When we say it’s hot, we’re referring to very high temperatures, like you find in the middle of summer when the heat can get quite uncomfortable. When it is warm though, temperatures are pretty high but bearable.


Cold / Cool

Cold refers to very low temperatures, close to freezing.


Sunny / Rainy

Sunny weather means there’s lots of sunshine. Rainy means that lots of rain.


Clear / Cloudy

A clear day is bright. There no signs of bad weather. It means the skies are filled with clouds with little or no sun.


Dry / Humid

When it’s dry, there’s no rain or moisture in the air. When it’s humid, the air is moist and contains a large amount of water vapor. Humid weather usually makes us perspire (sweat) more.


Gusty / Windy

These adjectives describe the wind. Gusty is a sudden outburst. Windy weather is stronger than normal wind blows.


Thunder / Lightning

These two nouns are often used together when referring to storms. Thunder is the loud booming sound which usually follows a flash of lightning in the sky.
