Hello,

What aircraft are you using and what are your shadow settings?

I think it's a well known problem that exist since sereval P3D versions and was never resolved.
At some view angle(s), the cloud shadows will dissappear.
So even if you set the weather to full overcast, if you look in a certain direction, you'll see the terrain (and plane) illuminated by the sun instead of being shadowed.

By the way, this also happens with scenery objects. When you sit under a hangar for example, depending on which direction you're looking, the hangar shadow dissappears and your plane gets illuminated by the sun...
