I don’t know why cloudy days always seem gloomy. Is that just me?

The forecast today looks mediocre, to say the least. After yesterday I’m finding it hard to get excited abuot the weather even if the daytime high will be above average. It’s supposed to be cloudy with a  30 per cent chance of showers.

Right now I’m seeing some blue sky and sun poke through the clouds. Maybe the forecast will be wrong and it will be another lovely fall day.

If today turns out to be lackluster I hope tomorrow’s forecast will make up for it. The forecasted daytime high of 18 C for tomorrow is the same as today but if it is sunny that will make all the difference.
