The weather for arrival will be...

English: The weather for arrival will be...

French: La météo pour l’arrivée sera…

At the time the weather announcement is made, the weather at the destination may be one thing. Depending on the duration of your flight, by the time your flight arrives at the destination much later, the weather may be completely different. Thus, sometimes your pilots or in-charge flight attendant will announce what the current weather is. Sometimes, they’ll announce what they expect the weather for arrival to be.

La météo (f)=The weather


L’arrivée=The arrival

Sera=Will be

Notice in French, we literally say “The weather for *the* arrival”.

Formal French and written French expect you to construct full sentences like this, but flight attendants almost exclusively use spoken French, and oral French often does not need to comply with all these grammar rules. Our Canadian French for Flight Attendants audio course thus offers a simpler way to translate this, which avoids conjugations “sera/will be”.

Seoul, May 2019. Séoul, mai 2019. The day after I arrived, I decided to go hiking in Bukhansan National Park, which is the large, mountainous park north of the city. (For some reason, I thought it was a good idea to go on the stair master machine that morning before breakfast in the hotel gym.) Needless to say, the mountain was steep, and it was a tough climb, taking me about six hours to get from the west side of the park to the exit on the east side. The climb was so steep at certain points that steps had to be carved into the rock surface, and you were basically pulling yourself up by the metal railings that were installed along the path. But what a view! Well worth the effort.
