Sorry if this sounds like a silly question, but why do some sentences concerning the weather include "i," such as "tha i grianach?" For this sentence, I typed "Chan eil i sneachd" and it marked it wrong. How to differentiate between sentences that require "ann" at the end, and ones that don't?

It is --- i. And there is --- ann

What is the meaning of -ann-?

I beleive it is "there" as in 'presently exists'. Tha sneachd ann = 'affirmative snow presently' or'There is snow'
