This type of writing uses the five senses to give specific details to the reader?
Why do authors use sensory details when they are writing literature?
Using sensory details (describing a scenario relating to one or more of the five senses) in literature is an excellent way for the author to help the reader create a "mental picture" of the scenario or character, which can make the story easier to understand, provide for figurative language, or simply engage the reader.

What is a descriptive composition?
The descriptive composition is a piece of writing that develops a "picture" of one idea by using sensory (ones that appeal to the senses) or concrete (ones that represent things seen or touched) details. The thesis sentence reveals the main impression of the topic by using details that enhance the single idea. Descriptive compositions are useful in conveying an individual's experience both vividly and accurately. The reader is able to use his/her senses to share in the writer's experience.

How do you write a descriptive paragraph about the good weather?
To write a descriptive paragraph about anything--including good weather--one must describe the senses--sight, touch, hearing, taste, and smell--in such a way that sparks interest from the reader and conveys the feelings of the observer about the subject of the paragraph. There is no need to overload the paragraph with meaningless adjectives. Instead, try to write the paragraph as if you were writing to a person who has never seen a blue sky or the bright sun. Are there birds chirping? Can you see the ocean? Can you see mountains? Describe everything you can see to convey the whole picture as if you are describing a painting to someone on the phone that could not see it. Can you smell someone barbecuing? Think of all the things that make this day seem perfect, all the details that accompany this good weather, and then try to convey them to the reader in your paragraph using a reasonable amount of words and sentences. Ensure that you order them in such a way that appeals to the reader. Maybe you want to build up the different senses starting with the least impacting senses to the most intense. However you do it, you should be sure to draw your reader in and keep them interested in what you are describing. You want them to feel as if they are observing that exact same day at that exact same moment.
