Before the cloud broke, with a high humidity I said to my wife: "It's very SULTRY"
That started a minor conversation about some of the strange expressions used to describe human reaction to different weather phenomena.
In my native Great Yarmouth, the seaside advertising described the weather as BRACING, a euphemism for cold sea breezes.
FRESH(ER) suggests that OPPRESSIVE warm and humid maritime air is replaced by cooler polar air.
SPARKLING is used, particularly with regard to visibility, in polar or arctic air.
BLEAK (as in midwinter) has I believe been used by the likes of Dickens, but despite my many interests I'm not into literature.
DREICH is an excellent Scottish word to describe - well - dreich weather (miserable for one or many reasons).
Over to you for more strange but useful weather words.
