Is there a way I can get the first BKN or OVC layer to show [ceiling] in front of it?

Only BKN and OVC but not FEW or SCT? Is this real functionality?

Afirm.

The simple definition... A ceiling is defined by the lowest BKN or OVC layer.

Ex.
"Few clouds 1400 few clouds 4000 scattered 8400 ceiling overcast 12000"
"ceiling broken 2000 broken 7000 overcast 12000"

Alright, I'll probably add cloud_grp:ceiling: the next time I update the generator. I need to see how difficult it is to sort the clouds. Right now I think those are sorted as in the METAR, but I'm not sure whether the clouds are sorted by altitude or type in those.

Layers are always sorted the lowest to the highest.

But because the cumulative layer opacity is what says if it's FEW and SCT, it's impossible to see a SCT layer then FEW.

cloud_grp:ceiling: is now available to be used as the ceiling statement preceeding the first OVC/BKN.
