I think if they removed the grey cloud from the weather maps, that would be a step in the right direction. And then show where the cloud is via shadowing on the ground. As the old maps didn't show grey cloud - just light and dark patches on the ground - which is easier to see where the rain and everything else is then. The cloud covers up the map too much - and then makes it difficult to differentiate from snow, cloud and fog then.
However, as has already been pointed out:-
Clouds are typically found way up in the sky – they're the white or grey fluffy things you see on a typical day. Snow is the white stuff that falls down
the sky and lands on the ground.
...I am able to tell the difference between these weather events in everyday life.
Has anyone watched the new BBC Weather and then been able to easily recall what the weather is going to be like the next day?
