time to switch off lights based on weather condition



I would like to switch off the exterior lights around the house at an earlier time when the weather is clear. I have a catch-all script to switch off the lights at 5 minutes past sunrise to cover for clouds, rain, fog etc.


When the weather is clear, I would like to switch off the lights 10 minutes prior sunrise. From the history I can see that the script never runs and I'm trying to figure out why. Couple of thoughts: clear only applies to daytime? Issue with fetching the weather? In the log I can see that HC3 get temperature, wind speed, etc but I see no mention of the weather condition. Any thoughts?


Thank you,

I can only find one condition with "clear" in its name, that is only at night. It depends on your Weather provider if that one is used. 


For example, see my posting in the Buitenradar Weather topic, with a matrix with all weather conditions:
