METARs, TAFs, and MOSs will tell you the cloud bases.

But where are the cloud tops?  Knowing both would tell you how bumpy the clouds are, and what level of turbulence to expect.

Skew-T Log-P diagrams will tell you that.

For more information, visit our webpage on Skew-T Log-P Charts.

Turbulence

Levels of Turbulence

Light Small, correctable deviations from position and altitude.  Aircraft control is maintained.

Moderate Significant deviations from position and altitude.  Momentary losses of control of aircraft.

Severe Uncontrollable deviations from position and altitude.  Loss of control of aircraft; possible deformation and destruction of aircraft.

From NASA:  New technology for detecting turbulence

In aviation, the Richardson number is used as a rough measure of expected air turbulence. A lower value indicates a higher degree of turbulence.
Values in the range 10 to 0.1 are typical, with values below unity indicating significant turbulence.
