The weather

In Britain people talk about the weather more than in most parts of the world. When two Englishmen are introduced to each other, if they can't think of anything else to talk about, they talk about the weather. „It's a lovely morning, isn't it?" or „Isn't it hot today?" and the other person will reply, „Yes, it's wonderful weather we are having. I hope it will keep fine; it seems almost to good to last."
The weather changes very quickly in Britain. This is because of the sea, which keeps the island warm in winter and makes the air cool in summer.The winds have very much to do with the weather. The warm winds that blow from the Atlantic are as wet as they are warm.
The east and north — east winds are cold and dry.
In spring the weather is generally mild but sometimes they get cold days. The summer is not so hot as on the continent.
The autumn is the best season except for spring. The climate is dry, mild. But the worst thing is the thick fog in autumn or winter.
In London it is sometimes so thick that cars may run into one another.
In winter they have all sorts of weather. Sometimes it rains and snows, and they also have fog and frost. But they don't get much snow there. The rivers and lakes are seldom covered with ice. The sky is grey and cloudy.
All people wear thick warm clothers. But it doesn't last long.
