A pair of questions on "Limit Cloud Layers"

Recommended Posts

Hi!"Limit Cloud Layer" option is set to 5 by default. My questions are:.is the upper layer (high cirrus, created even in CAVOK conditions) accounted as a layer for the "Limit Cloud Layer" purpose?.when "Overcast Enhancement" is checked, is an overcast condition (resulting in TWO overlying layers) accounted as ONE or TWO layers for the "Limit Cloud Layer" purpose?.I noticed METARs usually list a max of 3 clouds layers. So I guess I can limit cloud layers to 3 without losing too much weather detail? (Obviously, in the hypothesis the answers to the above questions are "NO" and "ONE").Thank you!Marco
