Hola Linda

The phrase "Hace calorcito" is an informal way of expressing that it is nice and warm weather. The inclusion of "calorcito" adds a sense of warmth or coziness to the description of the weather. In this context, 'little' ("-cito" as a diminutive suffix in Spanish) is used to convey a subtle, affectionate nuance to the term. It's like saying 'a little bit of warmth' or 'nice and warm' in an endearing manner. The diminutive is often used in colloquial language to add a touch of familiarity or affection to the description.
