place of adverb

Hello everyone
Is this sentence correct: He had very good weather: it was very sunny. But it was sometimes rainy and misty.
I don't know where to place the adverb "sometimes": it sometimes was rainy, or it was sometimes rainy?

But, sometimes, it was rainy.

it can go almost anywhere, but I agree with the above post that it sounds best placed there

"He had very good weather" is not correct, but the rest is. You could say "it had very good weather" referring to a place, or "there was good weather" during a specific time period (last June, for example). A person can never have weather.
As for 'sometimes', I like "it was sometimes rainy" and "But sometimes it was rainy" the best (in this context, probably the latter). "it sometimes was rainy' seems a little odd.
