  • An overcast sky

  • Cloudy sky

  • Gloomy sky

In order to describe a sky that is covered in clouds and may rain, you can say: An overcast sky Overcast means cloudy or covered over with clouds. 'The sky looks overcast today.' You can also simply say: It looks like a cloudy day. The sky looks cloudy. Another phrase is: The weather looks gloomy Gloomy means miserable, sad, downcast. This word is often used in the UK to describe cloudy or rainy weather. British people also say 'muggy' This has a similar meaning to gloomy. It means miserable, murky, dark and gloomy. We are having some muggy weather today. The weather looks quite muggy today. I hope that helps!
[雲](https://eikaiwa.dmm.com/uknow/questions/51763/)に覆われていて、[雨が降りそう](https://eikaiwa.dmm.com/uknow/questions/1133/)な空を表現するときは、 an overcast sky と言うことができます。 overcast とは雲が多かったり雲に覆われた空のことを意味します。 例 The sky looks overcast today. または、シンプルにこういうこともできます。 It looks like a cloudy day. (曇りの日のようだね。) The sky looks cloudy. (空が曇っているように見えるね。) 他には、 The weather looks gloomy. gloomy とは、どんよりしていて、悲しそうな、しゅんとしたような状態を意味します。 この言葉は、曇った日や雨の日を表すときにイギリスでよく使われます。 イギリスの人は、 muggy という言葉も使います。 これは gloomy と似た意味を持っています。どんよりしていて、濁った、暗くて鬱陶しいことを意味します。 例 We are having some muggy weather today. (今日は鬱陶しい天気だなぁ。) 例 The weather looks quite muggy today. (今日の天気は鬱陶しそうだなぁ。) 参考になればうれしいです!

  • gloomy sky

  • dark sky

[暗い](https://eikaiwa.dmm.com/uknow/questions/46757/)という意味で dark sky でもいいと思いますが、gloomy (陰気な、憂うつな、薄暗い)という表現もよく使われます。

  • cloudy sky

  • dark sky

  • ominous sky

Cloudy sky - the sky is full of clouds "The sky is very cloudy today. I hope it does not rain." Dark sky - usually refers to a sky that is covered with dark rain clouds "There is a dark sky outside. You should take an umbrella to work." Ominous - giving the impression that something bad will happen; if the sky/clouds look ominous, that means that it looks as if it will rain or there will be a storm "The sky is full of ominous clouds. I think it is not a good idea to go to the park today."
①曇り空―雲がたくさんある状態。 例文: "The sky is very cloudy today. I hope it does not rain." 「今日は空が曇っているね。雨が降らないといいけど。」 ②暗い空ー大抵、空一面に広がる雨雲のことを言う。 例文: "There is a dark sky outside. You should take an umbrella to work." 「空が暗いね。職場に傘を持って行った方がいい。」 ③不吉なー何か悪いことが起きそうな気配のこと。 雨が降る、または豪風雨になりそうな気配がすること。 例文: "The sky is full of ominous clouds. I think it is not a good idea to go to the park today." 「空一面に不吉な雲が広がっている。今日は公園に行くのを止めた方がいいかも。」

  • A threatening sky

  • A sky with pregnant clouds

  • Ominous clouds

A 'threatening sky' would be one full of low, dark clouds and possibly reduced visibility. 'Ominous clouds' - These two words are often used together. 'Ominous' means giving the worrying impression that something bad is going to happen; threateningly inauspicious. 'There were ominous dark clouds gathering overhead'. 'A sky with pregnant clouds.' This is a phrase that would more likely be used in poetry or creative writing: poet David Rubadiri Poet's An Africa Thunderstorm - Poem by David Rubadiri From the west Clouds come hurrying with the wind Turning sharply Here and there Like a plague of locusts Whirling, Tossing up things on its tail Like a madman chasing nothing. Pregnant clouds Ride stately on its back, Gathering to perch on hills Like sinister dark wings; The wind whistles by And trees bend to let it pass.
A 'threatening sky' 低く暗い雲が覆っている空模様を表します。 'Ominous clouds' -この二つはよく一緒に使われます。Ominousとは、何か悪いことが起こりそうな不安な印象を与える、という意味があります。類義語: threateningly inauspicious. 'There were ominous dark clouds gathering overhead'. 頭の上に暗い嫌な感じの雲が立ち込めている。 'A sky with pregnant clouds.' ちょっと詩的でクリエイティブなテキストに使える表現です。 実際にDavid Rubadiriという方の詩に使われています。(訳割愛) An Africa Thunderstorm - Poem by David Rubadiri Autoplay next video From the west Clouds come hurrying with the wind Turning sharply Here and there Like a plague of locusts Whirling, Tossing up things on its tail Like a madman chasing nothing. Pregnant clouds Ride stately on its back, Gathering to perch on hills Like sinister dark wings; The wind whistles by And trees bend to let it pass.

  • Cloudy with a chance of rain

  • Overcast

Cloudy describes a sky with lots of clouds in it, you can also call such a sky as overcast. To say there is a 'chance' of rain is to say that it is likely that it will rain.
Cloudyとは、空に雲が沢山ある空模様のことです。曇りは、overcastとも言えます。chance of rainとは、おそらく雨が降るだろうという意味です。
