“I’m a photographer and when I’m planning where I’m going to shoot this app is imperative. Being able to gauge sunrise and sunset quality before I decide on a location is critical if I only have a few days at a location. I couldn’t recommend this app more highly.”
Forecasts are generated by our friends at SunsetWX. While they don't detail everything that goes into their calculations they use cloud cover, moisture and pressure.
Using various weather models 3km NAM and 13km GFS they generate forecasts periodically for up to 4 days in the future.
