I picked up a real gem from Brent’s blog last weekend.
He’s learned of a Web-based tool called SkippySky Astro-Weather Forecast, which shows a visual map of cloud cover, including percentages, with breakdown of cloud cover (ie, high, middle, low and total).
This tool might prove very handy for seascape/landscape photographers who, like myself, long for good clouds in the sky.
Check it out at http://www.skippysky.com.au/Australia.
Making use of SkippySky could certainly avoid the immense frustration of turning up somewhere to be assaulted with a plain sky which is utterly boring and extremely difficult to photograph when facing the east in the morning.
