We present the results of numerical simulation of the evolution of optical and microphysical characteristics of the lower level orographic clouds which are periodically seeded by dry ice in the course of airborne experiments to provide conditions necessary for astronomical observations. These characteristics are compared before and after cloudiness modification for different seeding regimes. Recommendations are given on the cloud dissipation technique to be used for minimizing the optical thickness of a cloud in a given range of observation angles.
