A fairly consistent grey. A bit chilly, maybe with some wind.
17. Grey (mildly threatening).
No clear clouds, but a couple of dodgy ones that look like they might ruin your day.
16. Grey (car park).
The most depressing grey.
Pretty annoying for people living in the North. The goddamn Apocalypse if you live in the South.
14. Grey (heavy clouds)
Almost an arty grey. If you look at it upside down, it kind of looks like the sea, and you’re floating really high in the air.
13. Drizzle (heavy).
Will still get you fairly wet, very quickly.
12. Grey (rain coming).
It’s just a matter of time until it’s raining.
11. Drizzle (light).
Often comes with a side of fog.
10. Grey (solid).
Really thick grey, but has interesting clouds as well.
9. Drizzle (Scottish).
Also known as Scotch Mist. Cake can still be eaten in this weather.
8. Grey (decent clouds).
Really good grey. Lost of clouds, which make it actually quite interesting. There will definitely not be any sun though.
7. ERROR 404: WEATHER NOT FOUND.
The day when there’s just nothing. It’s not bad, it’s not good, there’s not even clouds. It’s like someone forgot to load the weather.
5. Grey (morning).
Looking like the sun might come out briefly, at some point during the day, so not all bad.
Typically, rains on about 30% of all days in Britain. Which is nice.
3. Sort of sunny.
The most common sort of sun. Everyone goes to the park, and pretends it’s not a little bit too chilly to be outside, then gives up and goes to the pub when the sun goes behind a bank of clouds.
2. The bit where it stops raining for a few hours.
You can run to the shops to get milk.
