As you learn English you'll want to know how to describe different types of weather. In this English lesson I'll help you learn how to describe a snowy day in English. There are many types of weather, but we're having a snowstorm here right now, so I thought this would be a great time to help you learn how to talk about it. As you know, talking about the weather is a form of small talk in English, so you'll want to master it! There are a few words and phrases for describing a snowy day. The snow can be light, it can be moderate, or heavy like when we have a blizzard. Today the snow is moderate - not light, but not heavy, but it will probably snow a lot harder later in the afternoon. There definitely are many things getting covered in snow though! In this English lesson I'll be sure to teach words and phrases like accumulation, wind chill, blowing snow, drifting snow, and many more! I think you'll enjoy this English weather lesson about describing a snowy day! โŒ› Remember: Always watch the video three times. Twice today with English subtitles on, and once tomorrow with the English subtitles off. This will reinforce the English you have learned! -- โœ… This video edited by Ember Productions: https://audreyember.com Thanks Audrey! -- โœ… Support Me and Get These Members Only Perks: ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ’ฒ If you would like to become a member of my channel here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCZJJTxA36ZPNTJ1WFIByaeA/join Becoming a member at every level has these benefits and perks: 1) For 10 minutes during each live stream you will be able to participate in the "Members Only" chat. 2) A cool crown beside your name during live streams and when making comments on videos. 3) Your name in green during live stream lesson chat. 4) You will have access to a members only video each Wednesday called, "Wednesdays with Bob".

So, as you can see,
ใ”่ฆง
00:01
we're having a bit of a snowstorm today.
ใฎใจใŠใ‚Šใ€ไปŠๆ—ฅใฏๅฐ‘ใ—ๅน้›ชใŒ็™บ็”Ÿใ—ใฆใ„ใพใ™ใ€‚

A snowstorm is similar to a rainstorm, of course,
ใ‚‚ใกใ‚ใ‚“ใ€ๅน้›ชใฏ ๆšด้ขจ้›จใซไผผใฆใ„
00:06
except snow comes down instead of rain.

That's probably obvious.
ใใ‚ŒใฏใŠใใ‚‰ใๆ˜Žใ‚‰ใ‹ใงใ™ใ€‚
00:10
I should mention though, that we're not having a blizzard.
ใŸใ ใ— ใ€ๅน้›ชใฏ็™บ็”Ÿใ—ใฆใ„ใพใ›ใ‚“ใ€‚
00:13
A blizzard is a snowstorm that's really extreme,
ๅน้›ชใฏ ้žๅธธ
00:16
where we have lots of heavy snow,
ใซๆฟ€ใ—ใ„ๅน้›ชใงใ€ๅคง้›ชใŒๅคšใ
00:18
and you can hardly see anywhere.
ใ€ใฉใ“ใซใ‚‚ใปใจใ‚“ใฉ่ฆ‹ใˆใพใ›ใ‚“ใ€‚
00:20
But I thought, since we're having a snowstorm today,
ใงใ‚‚ใ€ไปŠๆ—ฅใฏๅน้›ชใช
00:22
I should come outside,
ใฎใงๅค–ใซๅ‡บใฆใ€้›ชใฎๆ—ฅใ‚’่‹ฑ่ชžใง่ฉฑใ™ๆ–นๆณ•ใ‚’
00:23
and I should do an English lesson
่‹ฑ่ชžใงใƒฌใƒƒใ‚นใƒณใ™ใ‚‹ในใใ ใจๆ€ใ„ใพใ—ใŸ
00:24
on how to talk about a snowy day in English.
ใ€‚
00:27
(upbeat music)
๏ผˆๆ˜Žใ‚‹ใ„้Ÿณๆฅฝ๏ผ‰
00:33
So when I woke up this morning, the first thing I did
ใใ‚Œใงใ€ไปŠๆœ็›ฎใŒ่ฆšใ‚ใŸใจใใ€็งใŒ ๆœ€ๅˆใซใ—ใŸใ“ใจใฏ
00:35
is I checked the weather forecast on my computer.
ใ€ใ‚ณใƒณใƒ”ใƒฅใƒผใ‚ฟใƒผใงๅคฉๆฐ—ไบˆๅ ฑใ‚’ใƒใ‚งใƒƒใ‚ฏใ™ใ‚‹ใ“ใจใงใ—ใŸใ€‚
00:38
And it said that we were in a winter storm warning.
ใใ—ใฆใ€ใใ‚Œใฏ็งใŸใก ใŒๅ†ฌใฎๅตใฎ่ญฆๅ‘Šใซใ‚ใฃใŸใจ่จ€ใ„ใพใ—ใŸใ€‚
00:41
A winter storm warning is when it's already snowing,
ๅ†ฌใฎๅตใฎ่ญฆๅ‘Šใฏ ใ€ใ™ใงใซ้›ชใŒ้™ใฃใฆใ„ใ‚‹ใจใใซ็™บ็”Ÿ
00:44
and it's going to keep snowing for a few hours,
ใ—ใ€ๆ•ฐๆ™‚้–“
00:46
or in this case, for two more days.
ใ€ใ“ใฎๅ ดๅˆใฏใ•ใ‚‰ใซ2ๆ—ฅ้–“้›ชใŒ้™ใ‚Š็ถšใ‘ใพใ™ใ€‚
00:48
So that was kind of exciting.
ใจใฆใ‚‚ใ‚จใ‚ญใ‚ตใ‚คใƒ†ใ‚ฃใƒณใ‚ฐใงใ—ใŸใ€‚
00:49
Then I checked the messaging app that we use for my school,

00:54
and it said that today was a snow day.
ใจใ“ใ‚ใ€ไปŠๆ—ฅใฏ้›ชใฎๆ—ฅใ ใฃใŸใจใฎใ“ใจใงใ—ใŸใ€‚
00:56
A snow day is when you don't have to go to work
้›ชใฎๆ—ฅใฏใ€ๅ…ˆ็”Ÿใชใ‚‰ ไป•ไบ‹ใซ่กŒใ‹ใชใใฆ
00:58
if you're a teacher,
01:00
and you don't have to go to school if you're a student.
ใ‚‚ใ„ใ„ใ—ใ€ๅญฆ็”Ÿใชใ‚‰ๅญฆๆ กใซ่กŒใ‹ใชใใฆใ‚‚ใ„ใ„ๆ—ฅใงใ™ใ€‚

So not only do the students get a day off today, I do too.

01:05
So that's kind of fun.
ใจใฆใ‚‚ๆฅฝใ—ใ„ใงใ™ใ€‚
01:06
I can enjoy this winter storm that we are having.

01:09
When I checked the weather forecast,
ๅคฉๆฐ—ไบˆๅ ฑใ‚’็ขบ่ชใ—
01:10
it said two things about today,
ใŸใจใ“ใ‚ใ€ไปŠๆ—ฅ
01:13
about how the snow was coming down.
ใฏ้›ชใŒใฉใฎใ‚ˆใ†ใซ้™ใฃใฆใ„ใŸใ‹ใจใ„ใ†2ใคใฎใ“ใจใŒใ‚ใ‹ใ‚Šใพใ—ใŸใ€‚
01:15
It said that there would be periods of snow.
้›ชใŒ้™ใ‚‹ๆ™‚ๆœŸใŒใ‚ใ‚‹ใจใฎ ใ“ใจใงใ—ใŸใ€‚
01:17
This means that it's going to snow for a bit,
ใ“ใ‚Œใฏ ใ€ๅฐ‘ใ—้›ชใŒ้™ใ‚Š
01:20
and then stop for a bit, and then start again.
ใ€ๅฐ‘ใ—ๆญขใพใฃใฆ ใ‹ใ‚‰ๅ†้–‹ใ™ใ‚‹ใ“ใจใ‚’ๆ„ๅ‘ณใ—ใพใ™ใ€‚

There's just gonna be times of the day when it's snowing.
้›ชใŒ้™ใ‚‹ๆ™‚้–“ๅธฏใŒใ‚ใ‚Šใพใ™ใ€‚
01:24
Although I think they might have been a little bit wrong,
ๅฐ‘ใ—้–“้•ใฃใฆใ„ใŸใฎใงใฏใชใ„ใ‹ใจๆ€ใ„ใพใ™ใŒใ€

because it's been snowing the whole morning already.
ใ‚‚ใ†ๅˆๅ‰ไธญใฏ้›ชใŒ้™ใฃใฆใ„ใพใ™ใ€‚
01:29
It also said that there would be snow flurries.
ใพใŸใ€้ขจ่ŠฑใŒใ‚ใ‚‹ ใจใฎใ“ใจใงใ—ใŸใ€‚
01:32
Snow flurries are simply when
้ขจ่Šฑใจใฏใ€
01:34
snow comes a little harder for a little bit,
้›ชใŒๅฐ‘ใ—
01:36
and then a little softer for a little bit.
็กฌใใชใ‚Šใ€ๅฐ‘ใ—ๆŸ”ใ‚‰ใ‹ใใชใ‚‹ใ“ใจใงใ™ใ€‚
01:38
I guess snow flurries simply means
้ขจ่Šฑใจใฏ
01:39
that snow is actually falling out of the sky.
ใ€ๅฎŸ้š›ใซ้›ชใŒ ็ฉบใ‹ใ‚‰้™ใฃใฆใ„ใ‚‹ใ“ใจใ‚’ๆ„ๅ‘ณใ—ใฆใ„ใ‚‹ใจๆ€ใ„ใพใ™ใ€‚
01:43
It did mention a third thing as well.
ใใ‚Œใฏ3็•ช็›ฎใฎใ“ใจใซใ‚‚่จ€ๅŠใ—ใพใ—ใŸใ€‚
01:44
It said that we would have 20 to 40 centimeters
20ใ€œ40ใ‚ปใƒณใƒ
01:48
of accumulation.
ใฎๆบœใพใ‚ŠใŒใ‚ใ‚‹ใจใฎใ“ใจใงใ—ใŸใ€‚ ้›ชใฎ
01:49
When we use the word accumulation
ใ“ใจใ‚’่จ€ใ†
01:51
when we're talking about snow,
ใจใใซใ€Œ็ฉ้›ชใ€ใจใ„ใ†่จ€่‘‰ใ‚’ไฝฟใ†ใจใใ€
01:52
it means how much snow is going to end up on the ground
ใใ‚Œใฏ้›ชใŒๆญขใ‚“ใ ใ‚‰ๅœฐ้ขใซใฉใ‚Œใ ใ‘ใฎ้›ชใŒ้™ใ‚Šใ‹ใ‹ใ‚‹ใ‹ใ‚’ๆ„ๅ‘ณใ—ใพใ™
01:56
once it stops snowing.
ใ€‚
01:57
So once this storm moves through,
ใ—ใŸใŒใฃใฆใ€ใ“ใฎๅตใŒ้€š้Žใ™ใ‚‹ใจใ€
01:59
we will have 20 to 40 centimeters of accumulation.

There will be quite a bit of snow on the ground.
ๅœฐ้ขใซใฏใ‹ใชใ‚Šใฎ้›ชใŒ้™ใ‚Šใพใ™ใ€‚
02:05
When we talk about snow coming down,
้›ชใŒ้™ใ‚‹ใจใ„ใ†่ฉฑใ‚’ใ™ใ‚‹ใจใใ€
02:08
we describe it usually with three different words.

02:11
When we want to mention how much snow is falling at once,
ไธ€ๅบฆใซ้™ใ‚‹้›ชใฎ้‡ใซ่จ€ๅŠใ—ใŸใ„ๅ ดๅˆ
02:14
we say that it might be a light snowfall,

02:17
a moderate snowfall, or a heavy snowfall.
ใพใ™ใ€‚
02:20
A light snowfall is obvious.
ๅฐ้›ชใฏๆ˜Žใ‚‰ใ‹ใงใ™ใ€‚
02:21
It's when a tiny amount of snow is falling out of the sky.
็ฉบใ‹ใ‚‰ๅฐ‘้‡ใฎ้›ชใŒ้™ใฃใฆใ„ใ‚‹ใจใใงใ™ใ€‚
02:24
Moderate would be something like this,
็ฉๅฅใฏใ“ใฎใ‚ˆใ†ใชใ‚‚ใฎใง
02:26
where you can still see my house behind me.

้ ใใงใ‚‚่ฆ‹ใ‚‹ใ“ใจใŒใงใใพใ™ใŒใ€
02:32
but it's snowing pretty good.
้›ชใฏใ‹ใชใ‚Šใ„ใ„ใงใ™ใ€‚
02:33
So I would say this is a moderate amount of snowfall.

And then we have heavy snowfall.
ใใ—ใฆใ€ๅคง้›ชใŒ้™ใ‚Šใพใ™ใ€‚
02:39
A heavy amount of snowfall usually occurs

when a lot of snow is coming out of the sky.

้ ใใ‹ใ‚‰่ฆ‹ใ‚‹ใฎใฏ้žๅธธใซ้›ฃใ—ใ

This is when the air or the wind

03:30
carries snow for a little bit,
ใŒๅฐ‘ใ—ใฎ้–“้›ชใ‚’้‹ใณ

This is a snow drift!
ใ“ใ‚Œใฏ้›ชใฎๅนใใ ใพใ‚Šใงใ™๏ผ
03:46
You can also see that the drifting snow
ใพใŸใ€้›ช
03:49
has caused a lot more snow to accumulate
ใŒๆผ‚ใ†ใ“ใจ
03:51
in some spots as opposed to others.

So when you have wind, when you have snow,
ใงใ™ใ‹ใ‚‰ใ€้ขจ
03:56
you get blowing snow, and you get drifting snow,
ใŒๅนใใจ้›ชใŒๅนใใจ

When it's really, really cold,

it feels like minus seven, because of the wind.

In fact, right now,
