As you have probably heard, the favourite British topic of conversation is the weather (I’m not talking only about old people). 😀 If a Brit is making small talk with a stranger in a lift, passing time with a close friend, or anyone in between, you can be sure that the subject of the weather will come up in the conversation.
Here are some ‘weather words’ – try to allocate them to the following headings:
Wind, Water, Wind and Water, Neither wind nor water, Measuring instruments, Consequences of the Weather.
– hurricane, barometer, blizzard, anemometer, avalanche, drought, flood, rain-gauge,
sleet, draught, cyclone, thermometer, tsunami, gale, graupel, typhoon, hail, breeze,
storm, tornado, heat wave, hard rime, drizzle, downpour, lightning, thunder, mist,
fog, puddle, evaporimeter, overcast, clouds, wind-sock, aneroid, monsoon, landslide, dew,
frost, pluviograph, damp, thermograph, temperature inversion.
