Welsh Word of The Week

Tywydd

Y tywydd – the weather

After a fairly bonkers week metrologically speaking, what else could it be? After a few days of temperatures reaching 26 in my part of south-west Wales, y tywydd has since literally and figuratively chilled (because really, the UK reaching about 30 degrees in June was a case of the summer having zero chill), and at the moment it’s a much more sensible 16 degrees. After having lived in a country where temperatures would reach over 30 degrees for days on end every summer, people going crazy about temperatures in the mid-twenties was very amusing to me. Everyone was saying how hot it was, and I was saying that it was hot for here. As for today, it’s still very humid, and feels warmer than what it actually is. And yes, that’s the grey sky currently sat over my hometown!
