Hi Guy,

I've created a branch for this topic. If you want you can test the
MetarInfo_clouds branch on my github area.
The only changes are a new tcl procedure "cloudtypes{}" and the creation of
a new announcement "covering" in
the MetarInfo namespace. So a quick and dirty solution should be the
overwrite the MetarInfo.tcl in your installation
with the file from the branch and to create a new wavefile.

Good luck
