Clouds in FS9

When I fly for real, the view out of the window when passing through the clouds is a million times different to doing the same in FS9. If I fly into clouds they seem to disappear instantly (not all together) but the aircraft is through it in a matter of seconds which is obviously unrealistic. Anyone know of any good cloud effects for free that will make it a bit more life like?

I think what you're looking for won't be free as you need something like Real Environment Extreme or Active Sky, other than that increase your cloud settings (if your PC can handle it as clouds are a big draw on Frame rates) and try something like High Definition clouds which is a free download but i can't tell you where as i'll get banned for sending you elsewhere!
