Today, Feb.17, at 10:30 EST, I got a METAR report from ASNext for KSFO showing date/time as 141951Z.  What's wrong ?

EDIT:  Looking at the forum, I see that the web site is down  today.  Must be the problem.

I show current 1553-1555 METARs for all stations on all servers.  The website issue was resolved, on an unrelated server network.


If you continue showing old data, please make sure you are using live real-time mode.

It was the Weather Mode.  Don't know how it got changed - I have been using Real-Time Mode.


Thanks for the hint.

I have been using AS6.5 eversince, and is still using FS9.  Problem is that since Feb 16, the METAR indicates that it is for the 17th....until today.  I searched Google for the exact metar for RPLL and it showed that it was for August 17, 2016.  What seems to be the problem.
