GRAMMAR:

HACER weather expressions

Weather conditions are often expressed with the verb hacer in Spanish. These generally correspond to English expressions that use the verb to be. For example:

 

Hace calor/frío/sol/viento. It's hot/cold/sunny/windy.
  Hace buen tiempo/mal tiempo. It's nice out/bad weather.

 

Other weather conditions use the verb estar. For example:

 

Está nublado/fresco/húmedo. It's cloudy/cool/humid.

 

Verbs that refer to weather conditions are only conjugated in the third person singular.
For example:

 

Nevar: Nieva mucho en Minnesota. It snows a lot in Minnesota.
  Llover: Llueve mucho en Seattle. It rains a lot in Seattle.
  Nublarse: Se nubló a las dos de la tarde. It got cloudy at two p.m.
  Lloviznar: Lloviznaba todo el día. It drizzled all day.
