Oh cool. How are you doing your leaks? I was doing something similar last week and couldn't get something nice so I used a shader array, which of course just made things slow.

Jordan if i remember right it is just a motion of the clouds in Y.

I looked at the scene Jordan.
Yes there is motion in Y.
But it is together with change-animation in contrast,coverage, roughness, 4D noise, noise variation
and a little lead in warp amount in the density fractal node.
Plus change in coverage in the surface layer node.

The left density fractal part is only for the ground level of the clouds with the same seed
as the other density fractal to get a full coverage of the ground easier.

The right part is only for colour.

The middle part is where the real work is done.

Wonderful! If you would combine all your latest animations, you could well make a very interesting movie. 'Just' needs a story.
