The Climate of Great Britain
The climate of Great Britain is not usually very hot in summer and never very cold in winter. There are often clouds in the sky and it often rains. Rain falls in summer, rain falls in winter. It falls in spring and it falls in autumn. In autumn and winter there are often cold white fogs. When there is a fog, the traffic in the streets and on the roads does not go fast. Cars and lorries must turn on their lights.
Snow falls in the north and in the west of the country. It doesn’t usually snow in the south, but when it snows, it does so only once or twice a year, and the snow does not lie on the ground for long. In spring and summer and sometimes in autumn there are two or three weeks when there is no rain and the sun shines brightly all the time.
People in Britain like to talk about the weather. It changes very often, you see.
