Quote:I understand the weather can be variable. What I wonder is why the cleardarksky.com website is so much more accurate than the Scope nights app? I am in League City but Scope Nights looks like it is pulling the weather report for somewhere else. I have checked the configuration a dozen times and it is simply not generating an accurate forecast. I literally can say that flipping a coin for the weather report is about as accurate as Scope Nights. I might as well say "heads it is cloudy and tails it is clear" and I will be forecasting with the same precision as Scope Nights.

Quote:Seeing how it's accurate for some and inaccurate for others I think the solution would be a trial version that expires after a week. That way you would be able to see if it's accurate for your locality. That way you won't end up with a totally useless app like I did.obin
Quote:That hasn't been my experience with the app. If anything, Scope Nights consistently equals or betters CSC.
