TAF processing needed w ith downloaded weather?

Recommended Posts

Guest mkuebeler

I understand that archived weather is saved 4 times per day. What do you get with the download, six hours' worth of METAR and TAF, or just the METARs and TAFs at the time of the archiving? Say I want to start a daylight flight at 0700Z at a location where it is impractical to do so using realtime online updates (it's 1 am local time, and the last thing I need is to get jet lag from a flight sim :)), but I want realistic weather for the time of day. Do I need to turn TAF processing on to get changes in weather over the course of a 4-hour flight, or does the archived weather contain enough information to set the weather based on METARs alone? I've shied away from enabling TAF processing up to now, though I couldn't really say why. Perhaps because it is not enabled in the default settings.Mark Kuebeler
