Why is it “vai ser nublado” instead of estar?
Hi Steve, pretty interesting question, and truthfully it could to either way “é nublado” or “está nublado.” Typically, we describe ser/estar with adjectives as “the normal and expected condition = ser” and the “not normal or not expected condition = estar.” That description works pretty well here. It’s hard because as non native speakers we want a hard and fast rule, and sometimes the answer is a little more vague.
