"Never" is a tough word. Understanding the phenomenon doesn't necessarily mean avoiding it.
In this case, it might mean anticipating the need to divert before the destination and planning for it, but with the option to use a pilot tool (Special VFR) to get there.
Moving along, the single most misunderstood of the concepts of Special VFR I've seen is the concept that it ends at the border of the Class C, D or E surface
areas ("the airspace contained by the upward extension of the lateral boundaries of the controlled airspace designated to the surface for an airport").
On a Sectional, that means inside the Class D, inside the broken
magenta lines for Class E, and inside the inner
area for Class C (the same for Class B where it's not labeled "No SVFR"). I think a lot of the admonition against using it to get out (as opposed to in) unless you know
that conditions are better than in the immediate vicinity of the airport are based on this.
