I don't believe that Cuba has any aircraft sophisticated enough to do reliable weather missions. The Cuban government usually grants permission for NOAA to fly weather related recon in Cuban air space. Currently, NOAA is "seeking a memorandum of understanding with the Cuban government that would give the operations center blanket clearance to fly over the island nation."
