Stormy Weather

Day 283 of My Italian Learning Journal*
_____________________

Until a couple of days ago our area of South Texas was about to go into a drought stage. But then the summer rains came in, from 5 to 10 inches of rain. I thought it would be appropriate to review and learn some Italian stormy weather terms and phrases.

Ascolta Questo:
  1. Come è il tempo? How is the weather?
  2. Piove. It is raining.
  3. C'è la pioggia. It is raining.
  4. C'è il vento. It's windy.
  5. C'è sono le nuvole. It's cloudy.
  6. C'è il temporale.  There is a storm.
  7. Il tempo è brutto oggi. The weather is bad today.
  8. Che tempaccio. - What weather.
  9. Abbiamo un bel paio di temporali in estate. We have quite a few storms in the summer.
  10. Sta diluviando. It is raining.
  11. Sembra che ci sia una tempesta in arrivo. There seems to be a storm coming.
  12. Piove, porta un ombrello. It's raining, carrying an umbrella.
  13. Sono completamente bagnato! I'm completely wet!
  14. Sono uscito durante la tempesta. Sono fradicio. I went out during the storm. I'm soaking wet.
  15. Ci sono tuoni e fulmini fuori. There's thunder and lightning outside.
  16. Ci sono state gravi inondazioni. There have been serious floods.
Alla prossima!
