the meaning of a sentence " how about that for a summer,right?" Hello, Thank you for reading this question. I have read a introduction of weather. The passage is "Here's the weather for today in England. It snowed in the south east of England and it was also quite chilly yesterday. In northern England, there is frosty weather and it will rain tomorrow. So, how about that for a summer, right?" Question: Does "how about that for a summer, right?" mean "It would be better if these kinds of weather was in summer, right?" Could you tell me how do you understand this sentence? Look forward to your reply. Kind Regards, Jing W

He's basically saying that it is unusual weather for the summer season.

It's also very colloquial English and not grammatical. As the other respondents have said, he is making a joke about how inappropriate the weather is for summer.

The weather report shows rain and cold weather in different parts of England, but it is summer time. In this case the report is showing that the weather is more like winter than summer by asking a rhetorical question (a question that does not need an answer). So it is really saying, "this cold weather doesn't feel like summer, does it?" Hope this helps :)
