It depends what season is. In the spring, the weather is the best, it is cool and wet. In the summer, it is very hot, the maximum temperature can be above 40 celsius degree. But in the winter, it is cold and dry, the temperature can be down to below 10 celsius degree. And last, in the autumn, it is cool and windy but sometimes will have storms.

Well, it depends of the place but generally mild weather during the year. We have a mediterranean weather because we live by the sea in Spain. On the other hand if you travel to the north you can check out that the weather is different, probably colder than in the south.

I live in a city of Vietnam. The weather is usually sunny and cloudy. Recently, I feel very hot but it's windy in the afternoon. Long times ago, I prefer the weather in my town very much because it sometimes rains. But nowaday, maybe because of the changing of climate in the world, it less rain than before. How bored! I hope I can do something to help save the climate in the world...

Hi Vel, 
That's a good question. If you ask someone, what's the weather likeyou are asking them for a general description of the weather. Let's see if these examples help you understand.

What's the weather usually like in your town or city?
Where I live the weather is usually sunny and hot in the summer and cool and dry in the winter.

It's different to asking what type of weather someone likes. That would be like this.

What type of weather do you like?
I like hot and sunny weather. I don't like it when it's cold and rainy. 

Does that help to explain it?
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

I live in Kirsanov. The weather in Kirsanov is wonderful now, for the winter, of course. The temperatue is zero degrees. There is no strong wind and fog. There is a sleet and we have no snow and that's very sad... Soon the weather will become warmer and warmer!

In the north of my country, there are 4 seasons called Spring season, Summer season, Autunm season, Winter season. I love the differences between all seasons but perhaps I love most Spring season because trees and flowers look very really beautiful and also energy.

In my country, there are four seasons: spring, summer, autumn, winter. I like spring because it's the time of New Year and I can gather with my family.
