As I was taking off from aiy, unforecast low clouds were blowing in from the east. The airport was clear, but unexpected other traffic forced me under a low cloud at about 750' AGL. After about 1 min, I was able to climb clear of the clouds. Also, WX between nj and my destination (lfi) was significantly worse than forecast.
