Aéronautique et météo – glossaires utiles

Je suis méteorologiste et je suis souvent en contact avec les pilotes anglophones. J’aimerais avoir un vocabulaire sur les phénomènes météorologiques et quelques expressions usuelles pour tenir tête aux pilotes.
Merci d’avance et grand merci pour votre aide dans les cours que vous m’envoyez régulièrement. A plus.

Jessica: hi Adam
Adam: hey how are you doing, are you getting ready for your visit – it’s
gonna be great. I’m really looking forward to showing you around
Shanghai – it’s so exciting.
Jessica: Great, me too. Actually that’s why I’m calling. What do you think the
weather is going to be like next week, this afternoon I’m just gonna do
some packing.
Adam: Well it’s gonna be cooler than Los Angeles, and will surely be rainier.
in fact, according to the local weather forecast it’s gonna be
partly cloudy and rainy this week, and then even rainier next week.
Jessica: Really? Is it the rainy season there now?
Adam: Well it’s not really the rainy season yet, but we had some severe
weather last month, we had showers every week and this month it’s
gonna be even rainier.
Jessica: so I should definitely bring my umbrella.
Adam: yes, you might wanna bring a jacket too, it’s a little bit cooler
than Los Angeles, it’ll be about fifteen degrees when you get here and
it migh dip down to around ten degrees at night.
Jessica: Ten degrees! I thought you lived in shanghai, not in Siberia!
Adam: Sorry, I mean ten degrees celsius, let’s see, that’s about 48 degrees
farenheit.
Jessica: Oh good that’s more like it, that’s much cooler than Los Angeles but
not too severe.
Adam: Anyway, we’re gonna have a great time.
