Hello,

This question is about the difference, if any, between 'how's the weather?' and 'what's the weather like?'

In a book that I came across, the question 'what's the weather like?' is answered with the following:
It's sunny/hazy/foggy/clear/smoggy/windy/humid/muggy/raining/drizzling/snowing

and the question
'how's the weather?' is answered with the following:
It's warm/cool/cold/freezing

I want to ask if this is correct. I have seen some discussion on another site where someone tried to distinguish between 'how's your boss' and 'what's your boss like', but that does not seem to apply in case of weather.

Actually, both the questions ('how's the weather' and 'what's the weather like') mean the same to me, and I answer 'it's hot/warm' or 'it's raining' depending upon how it is here. Is this wrong?

Thank you
