You look up and the sky is completely covered in clouds. Which word do you usually use to describe this?
Depends on the type of clouds.
If they are clouds, I call it cloudy. If it's a marine layer I call it overcast.
If it's just clouds, then cloudy, but if it they're dark clouds, I would say stormy.
Completely covered is overcast.
Overcast is more of like a condition used for athletic events, or if you are like a high level philosopher.
I agree with you
Overcast. I also make a difference between partly cloudy and partly sunny. The latter is actually cloudier.
I'd call it the apocalypse. =)
I check weatherbug, then might say it's gonna rain. 😉
