So i take off set my autopilot to level off at 600 feet asl (500agl). it does but i am not in the cloud yet. so i go up another 100 feet. no cloud. another 100 feet. no cloud and so on. i got up to over 1000 feet and still not in cloud. anyone know what could be wrong. thx in advance.

Just want to add that it was few clouds at 400 ft and the overcast was at 800 ft. Shortly after takeoff another staion called cwul kicks in with a report which like Jim says blends in the wx, meaning if you see or don't see surrounding clouds is really important in this case.
