'S fheàrr leam a' ghrian

Explanation:

a' ghrèin is the Dative or Prepostional form of a' ghrian, thus it apprears after words such as ri, le, bho, do etc. It does normally doesn't occur after prepositional pronouns such as leam, leat, bhuat, dhomh etc.

Isn't it true that "a' ghrian" is the subject of the sentence, not the object of the preposition "le" in this case?

Bha i fuar sa' mhadainn, ach tha i griannach is blàth a-nis, chan eil sgòth anns an adhar *That i can see*. Bidh i glè fhuar a-nochd. :)
It was cold in the morning, but it is sunny and warm now, there isn't a cloud in the sky *That i can see*. It will be very cold tonight. :)

Tha latha brèagha ann an-seo cuideachd. Tha bodach na side ag ràdh gun ruig i 17C an-diugh. Chan eil sin dona idir. :D
It's a lovely day here too. The weatherman says it will reach 17C today. Not bad at all.

Ged a tha e an 4mh Damhair, tha i mar an la samhraidh an-diugh. Tha e solleir agus gle bhlath.

Although it's October 4th, it's like a summer day today. It's clear and very warm.

Ciamar a chans iad "humid" 'sa Ghaidhlig?

How do you say "humid" in Gaelic?

Can na h-Èireannaich "là bog" - a soft day. Is dòcha gum bu chòir dhut a' ràdh "'s e latha bog a th'ann"

bruthainneach is another word for you, meaning "sultry". Aimsir bhruthainneach - humid, sultry weather

'S e la bruthainneach a th' ann an-diugh.

It was cold again in the morning, but it is warm and clear now. It is nearly 17°C.

Chan eil dona do* Damhair.
Not bad for October.


*Would you use 'do' here or 'airson' or 'ri'?

Chanainn-sa "chan eil dona airson na Dàmhair". Ach chan eil mi buileach cinnteach ma tha sin ceart.

I'd say..... But i'm not entirely sure if that's correct.

'S e latha brèagha a th' ann far a bheil mi-fhèin.
It's a lovely day where i am.

Bha i grianach ann an Reims agus bha an adhar gorm gu lèor.
Tha na craobhan a'gabhail dathan : tha am Foghar air tòiseachadh.

An "sumac" anns an lios aig mo bhean.

The weather was sunny at Reims and the sky was completely blue.
The trees take colours : Automn is began.
One sumac in the garden of my wife.

Bha i grianach ann am Muile an-diugh cuideachd. Bha mo mhac a' cluich rugbaidh. An urrainn dhuibh am bàt'-aiseig Cal Mac fhaicinn a dh'astar?

It was sunny on Mull today too. My son was playing rugby. Can you see the Cal Mac ferry in the distance?
