Idiom workout: the weather

Idioms are an essential part of the English language and being able to use them correctly and naturally in conversation demonstrates a deeper awareness of the language and will definitely boost your lexical score in the IELTS speaking test.

The idioms presented in this video are all related to the weather - a favourite topic for making small talk in the UK.

Do you know any more idioms that have a weather theme?

For example:

to be/feel under the weather = to feel less than 100% / to feel a bit ill

“I don’t think I’ll go out tonight. I’m feeling a bit under the weather
