Weather is confusing in French for English speakers

It is cloudy (adj) translates into French as Il y a des nuages (noun) or Il fait nuageux (adj). English seems to only use the adjective? Thoughts.

Bonjour William ! Actually, in French you won't use "il fait" with specific adjectives likes "nuageux". Instead you'll say: "C'est nuageux aujourd'hui." or as you said "Il y a des nuages aujourd'hui." Bonne journée !
