Please could someone confirm that the following sentence makes sense?

Les New-Yorkais se plaigne beaucoup du temps froid.

(New Yorkers complain a lot about the cold weather).

Thank you!

    Some corrections... your original sentence does make sense, but there is no need to precise you speak about the weather ... everyone would understand it.

    Temps froid and temps frais are two different thing, I'm afraid.
    You can't say le temps frais when it's freezing outside or when there is a one-yard deep layer of snow in your garden... :p
