Weather is windy VS Windy day

Hello everyone! :)

I am helping my son to do some English homework...he's describing a day spent in the mountainside (??).

He has to say: "The whether was windy..." or "It was a windy day...".

I thank you so much for every useful help received.

Ciao and have a nice evening!

    Most often you would hear, "It was a windy day ..." Wind is part of the weather but for some reason we don't refer to it that way.

    Then for your other doubt:

    In the mountains :tick:
    On a mountain :tick:
    On a mountainside:tick:
    In the country :tick:
    In the countryside :tick:
    In the mountainside :cross:

    The last would be appropriate if you were in a cave in the mountainside or something similar.

    I'm not sure I agree with Velisarius. There's a difference, of course. I'd say:
    It's windy today :tick:
    The weather is usually windy in the autumn :tick:
    It's certain that it's windy is far more common.

    Thank you Redwood...so is it right to say, for example, "WE HAVE A HOUSE IN THE MOUNTAINSIDE"? :confused:
