Wouldn't "what is the weather in Greece like" also be correct?

Between April and October it's too bloody hot, and then November to March it's too bloody cold.

Would "how is the weather in Greece" be a fair translation?

Shouldn't "what is the weather in Greece" be accepted as well???

My computer was being slow so when I hovered over Griekenland I didn't see the country name (I kept thinking Greenland for some reason) so I skipped the translation and when I did that the little dots came up showing me that I could hover over Griekenland and see the definition. :(

I suppose context is the only way to tell when weer is again and when it's weather...

Yeah most time, but in some cases you can separate by looking at 'the'. "het weer" so 'het' is directly in front 'weer'. Example: "HET weer is weer onvoorspelbaar" =the weather is unpredictable again.

The audio sounds like "Griek en land". In reality, Dutch people pronounce it as "Griekeland", in which the "e" in the middle is an "uh" sound.
