Hi - I noticed there's information on cloud coverage on the wunderground website. Is this also available in the API? Thanks, Ron

You know I swear I saw this once upon a time, but am not able to track it down right now. You could always parse the text for current conditions. I'm not sure if WU uses the same terminology as NOAA, but NOAA has a glossary where you can see what their terms (ie: partly cloudy) mean: http://forecast.weather.gov/glossary.php

In the "hourly" resource, this appears to be the "sky" field.

Does this only exist in the Hourly Forecast API? I need to use this with History. Thanks

openweathermap.org has the cloud coverage in percentage in their API. I would love to see WU implement this too.
