METARs, TAFs, and MOSs will tell you the cloud bases.

But where are the cloud tops?  Knowing both would tell you how bumpy the clouds are, and what level of turbulence to expect.

Skew-T Log-P diagrams will tell you that.

Convective Sigmets



Turbulence



From NASA:  New technology for detecting turbulence

In aviation, the Richardson number is used as a rough measure of expected air turbulence. A lower value indicates a higher degree of turbulence.
Values in the range 10 to 0.1 are typical, with values below unity indicating significant turbulence.
- from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richardson_number
