"Nyáron és ősszel nincs hó."

Translation:There is no snow in summer and autumn.

Could some kind person please help to explain how we form "in" for the word endings of "nyár" and "ősz" Thanks

Summer and winter take the -n ending with appropriate linking vowel, as if you were saying "on" summer and "on" winter: nyáron and télen

Spring and autumn take the -val/-vel ending (which isn't explained as a topic on Duo), as if you were saying "with spring" and "with autumn." The v of this ending assimilates with other consonants, so you get

ősz + vel = ősszel "in autumn"
tavasz + val = tavasszal "in spring"

Thanks very much for that jsiehler, it would seem that nothing is straight forward with this language. :)

Would "It does not snow..." be said differently in Hungarian, or should I report it?

"It does not snow" would be better for nem havazik or nem esik a hó.

The given sentence Nyáron és ősszel nincs hó doesn't mention snow actively falling, it just says there isn't any snow.

Is there a word for "neither" as the second idea is negative

I wrote "There isn't snow in the summer or in the autumn," and my answer was marked incorrect. Should I report it?

Seasons of the year do not take "the" in general.

Am I hearing assimilation of the /l/ > [n] in "ősszel nincs"/?
