A rapidly changing WX system was moving through florida. On takeoff, it was blue sky with a few clouds visible to the west. After climbing to altitude, I decided to circle until the cloud layer below moved through. They were moving quickly. Winds aloft were 50+ KTS. While waiting for an opening, the jumpers decided to leave west/O my permission. This was the second time in 4 days. When jumpers register they are not told that the pilot is in charge of the jump and dictates if they can leave.
