WAYS TO SAY "VERY HOT"

Hello ladies and gentlemen. The weather is lovely and warm, finally, and here's what we Brits say 👇😎🇬🇧 

 

It is .... outside (very hot: most of these are rather informal in use and are used to really exaggerate... as we Brits do) 

- baking 

- boiling 

- roasting 

- sweltering 

- scorching ( a scorcher) 

- sizzling (like when frying hot food) 

 

- I spent the day under the umbrella because it was baking and i needed to protect my sensitive bald head. 👴 

- I sat all day under the scorching sun... hence why i now look like a dried grape. 

- The weather forecast says tomorrow will be an absolute scorcher. So it's bikini time!!! - Yeah, I heard it's going to be sweltering tomorrow, blin!
