    when we talk about the weather

    When we talk about the weather that it remains/stays pleasant till a certain period of time.

    Should we use the definite article "the" with weather?

    Should we use "remain" or "stay" when we talk about weather like in these sentences? "The weather stays normal". "The weather remains normal".

    Should we us the definite article "the" with evening, in "till the evening" or "till evening"?

    We also use "It" as a subject to mean "weather", can we construct a sentence in either way both with "it" and with "weather"?


    Have a look at the following sentences and let me know about the natural and grammatical one.

    The weather stays pleasant till evening.
    The weather stays pleasant till the evening.
    The weather remains pleasant till evening.
    The weather remains pleasant till the evening.

    Weather stays pleasant till evening.
    Weather stays pleasant till the evening.
    Weather remains pleasant till evening.
    Weather remains pleasant till the evening.

    It stays pleasant till evening.
    It stays pleasant till the evening.
    It remains pleasant till evening.
    It remains pleasant till the evening.

    Perhaps:

    It was good weather. It wasn't too hot, and it it wasn't too cold.

    You can use "stays" in relation to weather, but I have never heard that term used. After all, weather always stays the way it is. Until it changes, of course.

    We also use "It" as a subject to mean "weather", can we construct a sentence in either way both with "it" and with "weather"?Yes, although as with any pronoun, it's potentially confusing if you haven't previously mentioned the antecedent.

    The weather stays pleasant till evening.
    The weather stays pleasant till the evening.
    The weather remains pleasant till evening.
    The weather remains pleasant till the evening.

    Weather stays pleasant till evening.
    Weather stays pleasant till the evening.
    Weather remains pleasant till evening.
    Weather remains pleasant till the evening.

    It stays pleasant till evening.
    It stays pleasant till the evening.
    It remains pleasant till evening.
    It remains pleasant till the evening.
