Well, no, that is always an option.

There are consequences, but in the end it's simply a PSL for the sake of safety and you always maintain the right to land if you feel it's necessary. People seem more tempted to push helicopters into deteriorating wx because they can fly lower, slower and into tighter spots, as anyone who went over the spine of Timor from Dili to Suai can attest. Problem is, most helicopter pilots are even more reliant on visual reference than fixed-wing because most helicopters are not dynamically stable.
