As apparent from the image there is no cloud coverage over Nuuk, Greenland (indicated by the red mark). However, South of the capital Nuuk, there seems to be large cluster of high and cold clouds-indicated by the blue on the map. It is fairly normal for Nuuk to not have any cloud coverage during this time because typically on the 24th of March, Nuuk experiences the clearest sky of the year. Usually, the cloud coverage in Nuuk is around 87% annually. The terrain of Nuuk is characterized by a barren rocky coast, with various inlets connecting from the ocean.
The region this map illustrates is Eastern Canada; this is the closest region to Greenland. Over this region there are low pressure systems. There is also the presence of an occluded front that connects with a warm front. An occluded front is when a cool front overtakes a warm front. This is correct as it is apparent that the occluded front emerges from the warm front that is over the ocean. A warm front is when temperatures change from cold to warm after a frontal passage.
The region this map illustrates is North America, and even though it is broader in range, it provides a better picture of weather patterns in Greenland. Over the Greenland region there are high pressure systems. Over the Northeastern part of the North America there are low pressure systems with warm and occluded fronts. More towards the central part of North America there are cold fronts and the western part of North America is characterized by high pressure systems and stationary fronts. Like on the eastern coast of North America the western coast is characterized by low pressure systems and occluded fronts emerging from warm fronts.
