I may not know that much about weather and gases, but this storm may have some precipitation falling from it. Similar to our clouds, which turn gray when full of water and dust, this cloud may be fairly heavy and full of some liquid. If the storm begins to precipitate, than Juno might be able to retract some more descriptive information about Jupiter's precipitation, and in turn, its gas cycle. Maybe this spot will show us something similar to our water cycle, hinting at an ocean on Jupiter. This could help with wondering if Jupiter has a core, and what it is made of. Also, personally, since the rest of the planet is brown, yellow and red, the gray spot just seems more unique and interesting.
