Spanish Weather Expressions and Seasons

Beginner Spanish - Level A1


Learn weather expressions and the seasons they are paired with. Both SER and ESTAR are very useful for talking about the weather and seasons in Spanish. The verb ESTAR will be used to say what the weather is like at a given moment, that is temporary weather conditions, for example: “El clima está caliente”. On the other hand, SER will be used in a more descriptive and general way.
