Adjective of "vent"
Hello, I was wondering if "venteux" is accepted as an adjective that you can use with "le temps est + adjective"
This question relates to:French lesson "Talking about the weather with il y a"

I would not use 'venteux' to talk about the weather.
You can say, 'Il vente' ( like: il pleut or il neige ) but it is very formal.
Il fait du vent
il y a du vent aujourd'hui
is also possible ...
'Venteux' is used as an adjective to talk about something which is 'subject to wind'.
Cette plage /cette saison est très venteuse = This beach/this season is very windy
Les haricots sont venteux = Beans give you wind ( flatulence)
Hope this helps!
