You are going to need lots of cloud art. And you are going to need lots of coding.
Partly Cloudy, in the pacific region, is mostly stratocumulus (6,500+ ft) with some altocumulus (6500 to 12,000 ft). Stratocumulus is most common in ocean areas, but 50/50 over land masses with altocumulus.
Overcast, in the pacific region, is either cirrostratus (16,000+ ft) or stratocumulus (6,500+ ft). Stratocumulus is most common in ocean areas, but 50/50 over land masses with cirrostratus.
Extreme Overcast, in the pacific region, is an occluded front with lots of cumulus overlayed with stratus (surf-16,000 ft). It is a weather front phenomenon.
Rain, in the pacific region, comes from either nimbostratus (surf-10,000 ft) or cumulonimbus (surf-10,000 ft). Cumulonimbus is more common over open water areas.
Thunderstorms are an altocumulus/cumulonimbus (surf-12,000 ft) phenomenon. Highly local, but accompanied by widespread cumulonimbus overcast.
So, depending on if it’s over land or water, and depending on the operational height of your planes, there’s at least 16 different opportunities to reach or lose your objective, in varying % degrees.
Sure. That’s easy. We’ll ask Michael to get right on it.
You forgot to also add in the Cold Weather Zone.
Reckon michaelm should be able to knock off all this coding by lunchtime today.
