# Is there any way to determine or estimate where the cloud tops are?

There are various ways to find out or at least estimate where cloud bases are, e.g. ATIS/AWOS/ASOS report them directly, PIREPs may mention them, and you can make a rough estimate based on the temperature/dew point spread.

Is there any way to determine (or estimate) where the tops are, assuming that no PIREPs are available?
