Hello ladies and gentlemen. The weather is lovely and warm, finally, and here’s what we Brits say 👇😎🇬🇧
It is …. outside (very hot: most of these are rather informal in use and are used to really exaggerate… as we Brits do)
– scorching ( a scorcher)
– sizzling (like when frying hot food)
– I spent the day under the umbrella because it was baking and i needed to protect my sensitive bald head. 👴
– I sat all day under the scorching sun… hence why i now look like a dried grape.
– The weather forecast says tomorrow will be an absolute scorcher. So it’s bikini time!!! – Yeah, I heard it’s going to be sweltering tomorrow, blin!
– Blisteringly hot
– Scorching hot (compound adj)
– under the blazing sun (very hot and bright sun)
– Under the sizzling sun
We have these words (adjectives):
– humid (when the weather is hot with water vapour in the air: the standard word)
– sticky (when it’s a very humid day – like today in Moscow)
– sultry (hot and humid)
– muggy (unpleasantly hot and humid; semi-formal)
