    Today it is very cold

    Hi,

    Today it is very cold but I'm fully dressed. Is it correct?

    Re: Today it is very cold

    It's hard to say whether it's correct because I don't know what you're trying to say. It seems to make sense to be "fully" dressed when it's cold so I don't know why you have used "but".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    No. Today it is very cold but I am dressed warmly.

    @emsr2d2

    Today it is very cold and I'm fully dressed. Does it make sense now?

    Not really no. You could say "...and I am fully dressed for it", but it wouldn't be natural. MikeNewYork's suggestion is much better.

    Today is very cold so I'm dressed very warmly.

    I don't know what you think "fully dressed" means.

    Fully dressed does not mean that you are necessarily wearing thick or warm clothes; in the summer, you could be fully dressed in trousers and a t-shirt. Like MikeNewYork, I would dress warmly on a cold day.
