Hi there:

Is it possible to say that there won't be (any) sun when speaking about the weather?. It seems a little odd to me, but a teacher of mine said it is a correct sentence. If it is not possible, how can it be rephrased? Thanks, bye

    Hi Gonzalo,

    Yes, it is a correct sentence but it is not colloquial English. We say, "It won't be sunny today".

    Maybe other Brits use it, Gaer, but we don't in my part of the world.

    "The sun'll come out tomorrow,
    Bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow
    There will be sun." :D

    Thank you Annie. ;)

    Seriously, I think your are right in thinking that it is an AE thing.

    We’re hoping for lots of sun tomorrow so we can go to the beach.

    I did not even bother checking. I'm sure it's from the US. ;)

    And this:

    The only problem I face now, is that I live in MINNESOTA, and there won't be much sun here until April!

    No guessing there!
