Loss of surface winds in Active Sky

Recommended Posts

Guest

Hi,I am using V1.5 of active sky and I noticed just recently that it no longer sets the surface winds. All other WX is fine and the winds aloft work well but it no longer sets up the surface winds. It used to work just fine but I can't think of what I might have done to cause it to loss the ability to set surface winds. All options are set correctly. Has anyone seen this problem before? I have searched the web site but I can find no reference to this particular problem. Thanks,Mike

Are you sure you don't just have FSUIPC set to remove winds for taxi? That'll make it appear as though surface winds are gone.

I had something similar happen yesterday. The winds aloft were at 55 knots. Not a problem except that the winds stayed at 55 knots all the way down to the runway. After two go arounds and clicking the refresh button both times I finally had to close ActiveSky and reset my weather.

Mike And All,There has been a format change again at NOAA so the METARs are off. Surface winds are controlled by the METARs so AS uses the last valid data which would be an aloft value.Hope this helps,JimActiveSky Support

Hi Jim,Thanks for that. That would make the most sense as I haven't touched anything lately that would cause this. I did notice that the METAR line started with a font descriptor (courier I believe), something that just started, and when I think of it that would have been about the time that I started noticing this problem, so I think you hit the nail on the head. Too bad, because without the surface winds the landings have become ridiculously easy. Thanks again to all who answered.Mike
