Hello :)

Can I say that "weather/day is cloudy"?
I think that it's incorrect, am I right?

Thank you

    I would say some of the most popular phrases in AE are:
    "It's a cloudy day."
    "It's overcast." (Meaning a very cloudy and gray sky.)
    "It's cloudy outside." (Yes, this is somewhat redundant, but it's common.)

    In novels you hear "the weather was cloudy" and "the sky is cloudy and cool," but in everyday usage people generally say "it's cloudy outside" or "it's so cloudy."

    Yes, I guess the problem is you say "It's hot today", but not "The weather is hot today" (that sounds like the weather is horny, or sexy)

    So I say "It's cloudy", but not "The weather is cloudy".
