Foreground: Although most of the lake at KeriĆ° Crater is frozen, the area around the edges is still, at least partially, liquid. This isn't a sign of rain, it's groundwater - the crater is so deep it hits the local water table, and minerals from that groundwater give the lake its colour.

Background: Stratocumulus clouds, a mid-level cloud. They're fluffy, like a cumulus cloud, but packed together in layers. This isn't a sign of rain either, nor snow - but they do tend to produce some pretty spectacular sunrises.
