Hi everyone! In one day one minute it's rainy and the other it's sunny and the other it's rainy again and the other it's sunny again. In this situation, is it correct to say "These days the weather is unstable" or "These days the weather is moody"?

Your answers would be greatly appreciated.

With the right context almost anything can sound appropriate.

Steve the use of unstable with reference to weather is a bigger term. Unstable weather refers to the atmospheric patterns that collide to cause major weather events. It is not used with local daily changes.
