At least three separate risks. Flying without VLOS if cloud dense enough. Clouds are made of water droplets - fancy getting your bird wet? Some types of cloud may hide severe downdraughts, we know the H is good in wind but do you want to risk it?

Yea always thought it would be the grey clouds that would hold moisture

Sometimes, when they're a nasty dark blue-green color, they hold really big balls of ice.....

If you've ever flown in an airplane, you will notice that ALL clouds are white on top. They only look dark from below because they are thick or dense.
