How to smoothly fading between multiple shaders with p5.js?

I am trying to figure out how to fade between an array of shaders at random rates and random opacities. I tried creating an if statement that would provide a new target opacity and target rate of time it would take to fully change to the target opacity. I tried drawing the shader in the IF statement but it did not fade smoothly. Any help would be appreciated. Here is what I have so far in the .js file. And I have the full project at this link https://glitch.com/edit/#!/mulripleshadertest?path=sketch.js%3A74%3A2

I also asked this question on stackoverflow too at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/62803711/how-to-smoothly-fading-between-multiple-shaders-with-p5-js?noredirect=1#comment111126038_62803711
