StevenukdDear Teachers,

1.– What’s the weather like? It’s very stormy.
- How’s the weather? It’s drizzling rain / It’s gentle rain.
What's the weather like: This sounds like you are asking about the general climate of a region.
>>What the weather like in California?
>>It's sunny and mild all year around.


How's the weather: This is okay.

Answers could be: It's drizzling. It's raining gently. It's snowing and very cold. It's very stormy (ok).

- Are the questions the same meaning and the answers ok?

2. What does “ school finishes” mean?
It means "school ends." It could mean that the school finishes at 3 pm on that day or it could mean the semester (or the school year) finishes on June 4th (for example).

3.– right now
- at the moment
- at present

- Are these the same meaning?
Yes. right now means the same as now, except it emphasizes the urgency.
>>I want the money you owe me now. I mean right now!


4. It’s piercingly cold right now/ It’s cold piercingly right now.
The first sentence is okay...not sure about the second...it may be okay grammatically, but doesn't sound right.

5. – It’s snowing very much.
- It’s snowing densely/ thickly / heavily.
'It's snowing heavily' is most commonly used.

- Are 4 and 5 ok to say?

Thanks a lot to Teachers,
Well, I am not a 'teacher.' Someone else may chime in.
