What does the little "40" mean in the Yahoo weather app?

I used to think it was a 40% probability of "getting rained on" but seeing it next to a sunshine forecast is confusing.

@mjambon I'd guess it's because it's not very useful to quote a number when you can see "to the nearest cloud", so Yahoo only reports it on a clear day.

Another possibility might be humidity, but I wouldn't know why it's only sometimes shown in that case.

@khird unfortunately, it's also common on cloudy and rainy days. ๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”๐Ÿค”
