low, white, fluffy, heaped
the BBC tell me

out my window
I see roof tiles & smudges
and a closing sky

I'll bare that in my mind, but just recently on a discussion site, people have been saying that 3 pauses is too much for haiku. Maybe it's a performance thing mostly, how the third line is intoned.

I quite like it as this.

Ah yes, the weather forecasters...
I really like this duo, Alan --
"closing sky" is terrific!
