# Are clouds significantly easier to simulate in weather models than climate models?

Cloud forcing is still one of the major uncertainties of radiative forcing in climate modeling because there are so many uncertainties in it (and parametrizations). But also because the timescale of cloud development are much shorter than the timescale that climate models are run at.

So I'm curious: are clouds much easier to simulate in the short timespans of weather models? Or are they still a beast to simulate in them?
