Why is it that for some weather conditions "hacer" is used, and for others[size=3][/size] "estar" is used'''
How do you know to use "hacer" instead of "estar" and vice versa'

-Thanks,
Vivi

I think this is one of those times when you simply have to learn by rote which is used in which context.

Here is a link showing various ways to express what the weather conditions are, including using hacer, hay (haber), estar and stand alone verbs:
