    Question How to describe weather?

    I want to say that my city is badly affected by cool breeze nowadays. A heavy cold/ chill is blowing these days. How should I express it? Is there any specific phrase or expression in English or would " There are a lot of cool breezes in Karachi nowadays" be fine?
    Someone suggested " Karachi is in cool breeze". Is this ok too?

    Looking forward to the answer.......

    Try: "It's cold and windy in Karachi at the moment".

    Thanks for your help. I understand from your answer that the suggested sentence was wrong. Wasn't it?
    By the way have you ever been to Karachi? If not, would you like to visit one day?

    No, the original sentence wasn't correct. I have never been to Karachi, or anywhere else in Pakistan. I have met quite a lot of Sindhi people in Rajasthan though. Yes, I would like to visit there.

    (Not a teacher)

    "Karachi is experiencing a cold spell."
    "Karachi is having a cold spell."

    Something like that.

    A breeze is supposed to be gentle and mild, not 'cold and heavy'.
