Bonjour yellamaraju, Indeed in French you can use both sentences, "C'est nuageux" and "Il y a des nuages", to express "It's cloudy" in a general way. "Il y a des nuages " can also simply means "There are some clouds", like for example in the sentence "Il y a des nuages dans le ciel.".
Thanks Aurélie, It is amply clear. Thanks again
Can you say 'il fait nuageux' and if so is this more correct than 'c'est nuageux'?

Bonjour John ! Though it seems that some people use it, "il fait nuageux" isn't correct in French. You'll prefer "Le ciel est nuageux" or "Le temps est nuageux", or "C'est nuageux" :) Bonne journée !
