    You could e.g. put the daily data of the Wunderground Web-page (where
    you likely may have hourly information on cloud coverage) in relation
    to the sun's position above the horizon. This may allow you to gain
    eventually an idea on which of all the different meteorological
    parameters are important for your problem. However, I don't think that
    statistical analyses will be able to tell you more than very rough
    tendencies, this as a result of the large (temporal) variations in
    cloud coverage and thus also of the hole sizes.
