cloudsWhile upbeat optimism often seems to be the name of the game in AmE, it doesn’t seem to apply to US weather forecasts.

I’ve been learning a new set of terminology to know when to apply the sun block here as they tend to paint a grimmer picture.
If a British weather report says ‘partly cloudy’, I expect grey skies, a chill wind and dull, dull, dull. It’s been a delight to discover that here the exact same forecast can mean temperatures in the 90s/30s, bright blue skies and a few pretty white puffs floating across the heavens.
