Hola Steve

We use hay followed by nouns and está followed by adjectives (nouns and adjectives in Spanish, not in English), therefore we have: 

hay niebla (there is fog, but you don't say that in English, you say It is foggy)

está soleado (it is sunny) 

hay + noun (e.g niebla, tormenta...)

está + adjective (e.g. soleado, despejado...)

Some of this idiomatic expressions need a bit of memorising.
