Creating Events Based on Current Weather Conditions

I am new to WeatherXML plug-in. I've set it up to use NOAA, and the plug-in seems to be working.

I'm hoping to use the WeatherXML plug-in to create events dependent on the current weather conditions. For example, I usually turn on my lighting at ~30 minutes before sunset... when the outside starts getting dim, but it is not completely dark. However, ideally I'd like to vary when I turn on lighting based on weather conditions. If it's overcast outside, then I want to turn on lighting earlier than 30 minutes before sunset; and if it's sunny outside, then I could wait a little later before turning on lighting.

Is this possible? If so, I would I structure an event to turn on if current weather is overcast? I tried a forecast on day (0) containing "cloud", which doesn't seem to work consistently.

Try using the condition device. On the HSTouch/Data tab select the day 0 Condition device. In the event you can comma separate the conditions you want to trigger on. Cloudy,Overcast, etc.
