I usually get the cloudbase numbers off of the text soaring forecast published by MCAS Miramar.
46 =========== Gale Winnett *AT* Marion Municipal Airport, Marion, OH
Had not seen reference to this info before.
53 =========== Terence Honikman *AT* Santa Barbara, CA
Rely on BL height as surrogate
59 =========== Frank Peel *AT* Fremont, CA
Most flying here is of the "blue thermal" variety. OD is very uncommon here except during stormy weather.
62 =========== Matt Gillis *AT* Hollister, CA; Truckee, CA
I use the FSL-MAPS for this primarily, since I can play with the forcast surface temperature and see the effects on cloudbase. I find that to be more accurate.
101 =========== Tom Hubbard *AT* Hollister, CA
Again no reason not to use, but top of BL is so easy and accurate for where I fly most. Hollister, Panoche, Avenal
102 =========== ---------- *AT* HDH (HI), TRK (CA), MEV (NV)
Nice to know what bases may be.

Tends to underestimate
