Hello,

sky indicates the percent of cloud cover.

For example 100 means cloudy, 50 means partly cloudy and 0 means clear.

I hope this helps, we need to improve the documentation.

Thanks,
John

Hey John, thanks for the reply! Are you planning to put this sky information in the current_observation returned by the "conditions" feature? That would be awesome.

Hello,

That's a terrific idea. I added it to our wish list. It'll be easy to add, so hopefully we can get it done soon.

Thanks!
Feel free to rattle my cage on this too!

Bump 2.

Could you please add sky observation to current "condtions" list?
(or to history, if that would be easier).
Its a bit strange to have it forecasted, but not available from the current time, or from the past (even the "3hr forward predictions" from the last periods could be usefull for several purposes).
From what data is the "weather" tag/logo built up, anyway?
I'd assume it is similar data? (current cloud cover?).
Is there a one on one relation between weather tag and "sky " (cloud cover), or is it more complex?
