Words to talk about the weather (sun, sky, snow)
First of all, here are some important words regarding the weather.
How to ask about the weather in Italian...
To know more about the weather, Il tempo, ask the following question:
Che tempo fa (oggi)? What's the weather like (today)?
Here are a few useful variations.
|Che tempo farà domani?||What will the weather be like tomorrow?|
|Quanti gradi ci sono?||How many degrees are there outside?|
|Fa caldo?||Is it warm?|
|Fa freddo?||Is it cold?|
The temperature in Italian
In Italy we use the Celcius scale to measure the temperature: 0 C° = 32 F°.
To translate Degree(s) use Grado [centigrado] (singular) or Gradi [centigradi] (plural).
|Ci sono 10 gradi.||There are 10 degrees.|
|La temperatura è di 1 grado centigrado.||The temperature is 1 degree.|
...and how to answer
If the weather is nice, then C'è bel tempo. You can use the following expressions:
|Fa caldo||It's warm/hot|
|C'è il sole||The sun is shining|
|E' sereno||The sky is clear|
If the sky is grey, then C'è brutto tempo, there's a bad weather.
|Fa freddo||It's cold|
|E' nuvoloso||It's cloudy|
|C'è vento||It's windy|
|C'è la nebbia||It's foggy|
|C'è una tempesta||There's a storm|
|It rains hard
It's raining hard
|Si congela||It's freezing cold|
Take a look at the following dialogue.
|Claudio||Ciao Martina, che tempo farà domani?||Hi Martina, what will the weather be like tomorrow?|
|Martina||Ciao Claudio, domani ci sarà il sole!||Hi Claudio, tomorrow will be sunny! (Tomorrow there will be the sun)|
|Claudio||Che bello! Oggi piove e c'è il vento, fa molto freddo. Una vera tempesta!||How nice! Today it rains and it's windy, it's very cold. A real storm!|
|Martina||Sì...ieri invece nevicava! Fuori si congelava.||Yes...yesterday it snowed instead! It was freezing cold outside.|
