What is the difference between "Il fait beau" and "Il fait bon"?
This question relates to:French lesson "Talking about the weather with il fait + [adjective]"
11 December 2018
If you look at the end of the lesson , the difference between the two is quite imminent.
1.Il fait beau- used when one has to describe how the weather looks (nice)
2.Il fait bon - used when one has to say how the weather is/feels (according to your opinion) as neither too hot nor too cold.
The latter is used in the sense "It is warm"
Hope this helps!

If I may add to Varsha's excellent answer -
I would say that 'il fait beau' is how the weather looks to you, sunny, blue skies etc..
'Il fait bon' is how it feels to you, temperature etc ...
