English Translation

Title: Weather Report Personality: Makkī
Thursday the 23rd; it’s cloudy to partly-sunny*1, the expected high is 32°C; the expected low is 24°C with a 30% chance of precipitation. Friday the 24th; it’s cloudy to partly-sunny, the expected high is 32°C; the expected low is 24°C with a 30% chance of precipitation. A blue summer sky will likely be dominant through the three-day-weekend. Because the sunlight will intensify, please continuously take precautions against heatstroke. However, because there is also a possibility of showers*2, please pay sufficient attention to sudden changes in the weather. That was the weather forecast.

Notes: Japanese Grammar and Vocabulary 

1. 「くも時々ときどきれ」 literally means “cloudy, sometimes sunny”.

2. 「ザッと」 is a Japanese onomatopoeia. You may memorize it in the phase 「(あめが)ザッとる」. It indicates concentrated rain for a short time.
