Hi,Your first layer is possibly less than 200ft thick, and is discarded (2nd layer moved down for fog effect). As to why this vis is good, not sure, can you share the actual METAR report? Thanks!-Damian

Not sure that I can get the actual report, I have already shut down the sim at Denver. However, what I typed in the original message was copied from the actual METAR. Hope this helps.Kevin

Hi Kevin,Well it looks like the METAR string was the culprit.. Temporary issue. If the winds were reported xxx/xxKT then that is the problem... / is erroneous. If you get similar results please share the entire METAR string (cut and paste from wxRE) and I'll run it through some tests.. thanks!-Damian

Damien,I can't remember if that / was acutally in the report, but I guess it is too late to find out if that was the problem. Thanks for the good support and we are all patiently awaiting AS2!Thanks,Kevin
