I think weather-talk is an ingenious invention by girls. It has a double functionality of engaging our over-active tongue in some meaningful exercise and filling up the awkward silence that rises when a girl is forced into the company of another girl, the two of them having nothing similar at all. I don't understand why silence is considered so impolite. It even makes its way to a quote: "Love is when you can sit together in silence and be blissful" Like it's the worst thing that could happen between two people! Why do you have to be intimate to feel comfortable sharing silence? Maybe because in silence our thoughts are louder. We involuntarily share what we want to keep unsaid: Amusement, hopes, happiness, love... but also grief, despair, anger, hatred... So we share silence only with those we love, because there's nothing ugly to hide in our feelings for them. In the science of the silence of love, we are purely us: naked, transparent and fragile.
