Being a fellow programmer who also has poor style and limited training, I 
think your code may be a little to cryptic for people to decipher and thus 
come up with answers to your questions. I say this because it has been said 
to me on more than one occasion--and I'm sure it will be said to me yet again 
in the future as well. Perhaps someone might point you to a python style 
manual:

> i = 0
> for x in hour:
>     skyName = skiesok[i]
>     print skyName
>     number = str(skyName[3:-4])
>     oconv, oo, oe = win32pipe.popen3('oconv -i no_sky.oct'\
>     +' sky'+number+'.sky'+' > '+'tmpOct'+number+'.oct')
>     psign, po, pe = win32pipe.popen3('psign -h 16 '\
>     +str(day)+' /'+str(month)+' / '+number+':00'+' > label'+number+'.pic')
>     rpict, ro, re = win32pipe.popen3('rpict -vf view.vf '+ambparr+'
> '+'tmpOct'+number+'.oct'\
>     +' | '+'pfilt -x /2 -y /2'\
>     +' | '+'pcompos - 0 0 label'+number+'.pic 0 0'\
>     +' > '+'tmp'+number+'.pic') 
>     i = i +1
