greek weather words and phrases

Postby daivid » Fri Jul 19, 2013 6:29 pm

This is from my database of weather words.
I first used "Reading Greek" which has its own system of classifying noun declensions.
Hence 3a is the most common 3rd declension for feminine and masculine nouns.
I may change it to the more conventional nom + gen form.
Definitions as relevant to weather rather than full definitions of course/
