What do the white dots and flat clouds mean? What does each weather symbol mean?

    What app?

    The symbols are generated by Yahoo weather.


    Basically they are


    Sun: Sun

    Clouds: Clouds

    Flat Clouds: Flat Clouds

    White Dots: wear a coat

    Droplets: bring an umbrella


    For example:




    Right now it's mostly sunny and cold. Friday, it will be sunny and less cold. Saturday, it will be rainy and snowy. Sunday will be warmer but still too cold. Monday: Not sure but it looks nasty. Tuesday: like Saturday only colder.


    Seriously, the icons are dumb and the forecasts are usually wrong anyway.
