    I'm not a teacher nor a native speaker.

    I'd say "blew out".
    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.

    And in BrE.

    I'd say "blew out".
    I wouldn't use this.

    With rain and cloud, you could use clear up, but let up is the natural choice for me with a storm.

    Can you explain then why you copied that question?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Re: "A phrasl verb instead of did not stop or improve for weather "

    Hi,

    I have a tutor who always encourages me to use this forums for improving my language. This question was not homework, because I know that should not ask homework here. When I told my teacher the problem, he told me, that person is my classmate, I did not know, that person use this forum too, if I knew that I have never asked that question and because of that I told u I did not copy.

    So sorry for any misunderstanding .

    I am very much thankful for accepting me again.
