I see it has been raised before that sunrise and sunset times are only available in current weather requests. (https://openweathermap.desk.com/customer/portal/questions/11421788-sunrise-and-set)
As this issue was first raised in February 2015 I wondered if there was any progress?
I need sunrise times for days in the future and am going to be forced to change API if I can not get these.
As a free account user I appreciate all the work that has gone into the API but cannot commit to paying for an account when my application is ready for production without this functionality in place.
Thanks for raising this question again.
Based on the logic of our forecast data it is not correct to implement sunrise and sunset info for 5 day/3hours API.
This feature is more applicable for the 16 daily API.
We will consider this implementation in the next version of our API.
Also, monitor our news page to be aware about lattest updates.
Thanks for understanding and hope you stay in touch with us.
