Now what does he mean by build-up? is he referring to ice build-up or cumulonimbus clouds?

Center said they're not allowed to allow course deviations for sightseeing. So the Skywest crew reluctantly accepted the fact they werent going to be able to give their passengers a sightseeing show.
The next thing from Center was " Left and right deviations for weather approved, cleared direct Twenty-Nine Palms when able, report when direct TNP."
