Just so, why is the sky blue saying?

A clear cloudless day-time sky is blue because molecules in the air scatter blue light from the sun more than they scatter red light. When we look towards the sun at sunset, we see red and orange colours because the blue light has been scattered out and away from the line of sight.

Similarly, what does Blue Skies Ahead mean? 'Blue skies ahead' is an English idiom meaning that everything is good. I think it is usually used in the plural because it means that the sky will be blue today and tomorrow and the next day and so on - that is, there will be "blue skies ahead''.

Keeping this in view, what does out of blue mean?

Yet another version of the idiom reveals what comes out of a clear blue sky. It is possible to say that something unexpected is a bolt from the blue.

Is it blue sky or blue skies?

Sunlight reaches Earth's atmosphere and is scattered in all directions by all the gases and particles in the air. Blue is scattered more than other colors because it travels as shorter, smaller waves. This is why we see a blue sky most of the time. Closer to the horizon, the sky fades to a lighter blue or white.
