I find on consulting the meteorological record of those days that they were overcast and chilly with local showers, which may perhaps account for this intermission.
Может быть, потому, что, как я обнаружил, сверяясь с метеорологическими сводками, в те дни погода стояла пасмурная и холодная, а кое-где шел проливной дождь.

When, however, the sky was overcast with grey clouds of morning and I felt chilly after bathing, I would often start to walk at random through the fields and woods, and joyously trail my wet boots in the fresh dew.
Когда на небе были утренние серые тучки и я озябал после купанья, я часто без дороги отправлялся ходить по полям и лесам, с наслаждением сквозь сапоги промачивая ноги по свежей росе.

Towards the end he wept no more, though he continued to emit an occasional groan; but his face grew more overcast day by day, as though Eternity were wrapping its gloomy mantle about him.
Под конец, правда, он уже не плакал, слез не было, но только стонал иногда; но лицо его всё более и более подергивалось как бы мраком. Точно вечность уже осеняла его мрачным крылом своим.

It was an overcast day, albeit not foggy, and the electric light shades glowed warmly, and an Italian waiter with insufficient English took Ramage's orders, and waited with an appearance of affection.

THE sky was overcast with low-hanging clouds, and though it was light enough to see the cart-ruts winding along the road, still to the right and left no separate object could be distinguished, everything blending together into dark, heavy masses.
Небо заволокло низкими тучами - и хотя не было совсем темно и накатанные колеи на дороге виднелись, бледно поблескивая, впереди, однако, направо, налево все застилалось и очертания отдельных предметов сливались в смутные большие пятна.
