Just cleared a line of squalls. What is a good rule of thumb for clearing cloud tops where the possibility of lightning exists?

You should NEVER overfly a Thunderstorm because the tops can reach well above 60,000 feet.

A good rule of thumb is toavoid thunderstorms by 10nm FL200 and above and 5nm below that.
