How to talk about the weather in Spanish? This is a question I received a few months ago in the Spanish Learning Community.
I also realised, while talking about the weather with my students, that the expressions of weather in Spanish might be a bit confusing.
Let me explain. Let’s see how we say in Spanish that it’s night time, it’s sunny, it’s cold and it’s foggy.
- It is night time >> Es de noche.
- It is sunny >> Está soleado.
- It is cold >> Hace frío.
- It is foggy >> Hay niebla.
While in English all these sentences are built using the verb to be, in Spanish we use four different verbs!
The weather in Spanish
How do I know which verb I need to use? One of my students asked me.
I have created this infographics to help you learn the expressions of weather.
“Divide y vencerás”, which means “divide and rule”. Go one by one, step by step. Learn first the expressions with ES, then ESTÁ, then HACE and finally HAY.
There is a second infographics with all the nouns and verbs related to the weather.
Now you can talk about the weather in Spanish!
