With calm winds, no rain, good satellites locked.....  all green except cloud cover.   How does a 4,000 foot cloud ceiling affect a drone 200 ft off the ground?

I know. In my case the uav forecast app also sometimes misjudges the weather.
It shows rainy or cloudy when the sky is clear!
I think it’s just some bugs in the software, that have nothing to do with DJI.

ok thanks..  I think now that the app is more for private VFR pilots flying airplanes.  Not really for drone pilots flying under 400'.  However it does give other valuable information.  I like the app.

The main things to consider from the app is the wind profile and 'K' values. The rest is more common sense i.e. actual weather conditions you can see with your own eyes and number of available GPS satellites. On that last point though the app will assess the positioning of the GPS constellation not just the number above your horizon line. As with much in life, use common sense and experience as your guides in addition to any 3rd party assessments.
