It is never too hot or too cold m Great Britain. This
is because of the sea, which keeps the island warm in winter and makes the air
cool in summer. The winds are also very often in Great Britain. They blow from
the south-west two days out of every three. But the warm winds from the
Atlantic are very wet. They also bring a lot of rain to the island. The east or
north-east winds are cold and dry.
The weather very often changes in Great Britain. You
can never have the same kind of weather for a long time. In spring, for
example, sunshine and showers follow each other so often during the day that an
umbrella or a rain-coat are really necessary in Great Britain. The weather in
spring is generally mild, but sometimes the days are really cold. The summer is
not so cold as on the continent, and warm days in autumn are beautiful. In
winter they have all sorts of weather. Sometimes it rains and sometimes it
snows. Still, in Great Britain it is never so cold in winter as in our country
and they do not get so much snow there as we get here in Russia. The rivers and
lakes are seldom covered with ice. As the ice, if there is any, is not thick
enough, they seldom go skating on the rivers in Great Britain.
But the worst thing about the climate in Great Britain
is the thick fog they so often have in autumn and in winter. In London it often
mixes with the smoke of plants and factories and they call it the “smog”. It is
sometimes so thick that cars may run into one another.
