A)The forecast is for clear skies.
I cannot understand this meaning and nuance.
Does it mean "according to the weather forcast, it is going to be clear skies"?
Also, is it OK to use B)"The forecast calls for clear skies"?
Many thanks in advance.

I see no problem with either expression.
We use it here. "They're calling for rain tomorrow." meaning that the forecast is for rain.
Forecast calls for:
Thanks - I am clearly behind the times.
Thanks a lot!!
It is the first time for me to see this expression
"the weather forecast is for..."
I'm not sure the meaning of "for" in this sentence.
Also, I think it is Ok to say
"The forecast is good for tomorrow."
but is it OK to say
"The forecast is sunny or sun tomorrow"?
When the subjest begins with "the forecast", should I use "for" before
the particular weather such as sun, rain, snow?
The forecast is for rain, sun, snow, high humidity, gusty winds, freezing rains.
You need a noun, so not "The forecast is for sunny," but "The forecast is for a sunny day" is okay.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
Thank you so much!
Can I ask you one more question?
I often see A)" The weather forecast is for rain"
So it would be natural.
And I don't see b)" The weather forecast is rain"
So I guess it is less natural than A or it's not correct.
Am I right?
Sorry for lingering on my question.
Thanks a lot in advance!
