A Nice and bright this morning.
B Yes, much better than yesterday.
A The wind’ll probably get up later.
B As long as it doesn’t rain.


Could you please explain what the sentences in bold mean and in what way they are connected logically. It's clear with the first two sentences, but I can't make it out with the next two.

2)
A It seems to be clearing up.
B It makes a change, doesn’t it?
A Apparently it’s going to turn colder.
B Still, another month should see us through the worst of it.

What does the phrase in bold mean? :-?

A The wind’ll probably get up later. The wind velocity will increase. In AmE and in that context you would more likely hear/read, "pick up" as opposed to "get up".
B As long as it doesn’t rain. The wind is OK with me, but I hope it doesn't rain.

B It makes a change, doesn’t it? OR in AmE "It's changing, isn't it?" I don't think you would hear/see "makes" in BrE either.
A Apparently it’s going to turn colder.
B Still, another month should see us through the worst of it. In one month we should expect the weather to improve.

It makes a change - It is something new and different.
