¿Qué tiempo hace?
What´s the weather like? How to describe the meteorological conditions in Spanish? How to say the sun is shining or it´s sweltering? Let´s take a look on these matters.
For the utterances "It's sunny", "It's cold", "It's warm" and "It's windy" in Spanish is used the verb "hacer" (to make). If we translate the phrase literally - "It makes sun", etc.
|Hace sol||It´s sunny|
|Hace viento||It's windy|
|Llueve / Está lloviendo||It's raining|
|Está nublado||It´s cloudy|
|Hace frío||It´s cold|
|Hay tormenta||There is a thunderstorm|
|Hace calor||It´s warm|
|Nieva / Está nevando||It´s snowing|
|Hay niebla||It´s foggy/There's a fog|
|Hace un calor sofocante||It´s sweltering|
|El sol está brillando||The sun is shining|
|Hace buen tiempo||The weather is nice|
|Hace mal tiempo||The weather is bad|
Of course, there is an other way to express about the weather in Spanish, although it is not so common. Instead of the upper phrases one can use adjectives. They are utilized with the verb "estar" (to be), e.g.:
How to say that you´re cold or you´re hot?
Lola: ¡Hola, Carmen! ¿Qué tiempo hace hoy? Hello, Carmen! What is the weather like today?
Carmen: Está lloviendo y hay tormenta. Tengo frío. It´s raining and there is a thunderstorm. I´m cold.
