Should one always use "Il y a" when describing the weather?
I know certain kinds of weather are expressed with a direct verb, like:
* il pleut
* il neige
* il tonne
But there seems to be multiple ways of describing other kinds of weather, like "it's sunny." I've heard:
* il y a du soleil (which is the example in this lesson)
* c'est ensoleillé
I've heard both:
* il y a des nuages
as well as:
* c’est nuageux
Are all these versions correct? Is one preferred or in more common use than the other?Thanks!
This question relates to:French lesson "Talking about the weather with il y a + [noun]"

They are all possible and correct... do no forget the use ‘il fait’ also to express the weather as in the following lesson -
