I'm having trouble making out the precise pronunciation of bright(Akira) in this sentence. Is it akirui or akurui or something else even?

It's あかるい (akarui)

could "sunny" work? I don't think we often say "bright" unless planning photography.

Sunny means you can see the sun. Bright is not necessarily caused by the sun, maybe from big outdoor spotlight?

we say it's bright out pretty often, sometimes even if it's cloudy it still can seem bright, especially if your eyes aren't used to it/ are sensitive.

Is "Is outside clear?" wrong?

明るい(あかるい)is referring to light/brightness.

晴れ(はれ)would refer to clear skies/sunny.
