Incorrect weather

Recommended Posts

Guest RodCat

Hi. Would it be possible to please check your source for weather imformation for Australia.We are currenty having a rather large thunderstorm and Active sky weather is incorrect. If i us the inbuild Microsoft weather online update it shows correct with a big bad thunder storm. I have noticed the weather seems to be the wrong time. Out by a few hours, behind it seems maybe 12 hours or so...My home Airport is YMEN or YMML.Thanks Rod....

Did you hit FSUIPC -> "Clear all weather" before you refreshed AS ?

This afternoon i have come accross a weird issueI fire up AS first in PAUSE mode.I then fire up FS9Clear Weather in FSUIPCRefresh ASWhat i find now is that on the first write to the weather stations only the "haze" layer (AS haze) is drawn - no clouds - even though the METAR states Few003 for my closest station. I have to actually REFRESH again for it to display the clouds stated in the metar...Now the weird part.....On every refresh...the type of clouds change every time, also the amount of clouds...... first (or second if the first attempt fails) i get stratus (few)second attempt i get cumulus (more dense)third attempt i get a mix of the two... (stratus & cumulus)Now how does that work ?
