breaks in overcast

In U.S. weather observing practice, a condition wherein the cloud cover is more than 0.9 but less than 1.0 (to the nearest tenth).

This would appear in an aviation weather observation as an overcast sky cover, with an encoded "remark" (currently, "BINOVC") to indicate any breaks.
