    rain or raining

    1 We won't go sightseeing because it will be rainy this weekend.
    2 We won't go sightseeing because it will be raining this weekend.

    Teachers, which word am I supposed to use "rainy" or "raining' in the sentence above? In my opinoin, I think both are OK, in that both words can be uesd to talk about "weather".

    See my changes above.

    "Raining" is more common but "rainy" is not incorrect. I'd probably say "We won't go sightseeing this weekend because it's going/forecast to rain".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
