Animated Skies?

Is there a way to animate a skybox where clouds can actually move, and or a sun sets to become night time? I remember going to certain servers where the skybox was different on 2fort that made it nighttime, and I was wondering if that was even a possibility.

Here are a couple examples where skies have been animated in QTF:

What I did for Mulch_faf was make a brush with the cloud texture on the bottom face and noclip on the others and placed it right below the skybox, high above the player. It automatically moves.

You can put anything you want in your sky as long as you can model it. Just look at HL2:ep1 and ep2 and the cloud effects they put above the citadel.

Day to night transitions won't work too well, because all the lighting in your map is pre-rendered. The engine won't support large-scale dynamic lights.
