First half of June is cold and wet (5)
I believe the answer is:
'wet' is the definition.
Both the answer and definition are adjectives. Maybe they are linked in a way I don't understand?
'first half of june is cold' is the wordplay.
'first half of' means to take half the letters.
'is cold' becomes 'icy' (similar in meaning).
'june' halved is 'ju'.
'and' acts as a link.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for juicy that I've seen before include "description of ripe oranges" , "Succulent - risque - lucrative" , "Full of sap" , "Interestingly scandalous" , "Provocatively interesting" .)
