Severe turbulence can be experienced 10 miles from the Cb either to the side or above. To assure safe ITCZ penetration and keep 10 miles clear of the severe turbulence would require a corridor in the region of 30 miles wide.

As you enter the valley between Cb who knows what may happen as you get further into the system?
