Just purchased the Active Sky X bundle but the weather reporting is funky.LSGS reports -6c and snow when LSGS own metar reports:LSGS 010650Z 28003KT 240V300 9000 -RA FEW005 SCT040BKN060 11/10 Q1014=What am I doing wrong?Also unless I manually adjust visibility it never goes over 10 miles!Plus uploading weather file to FSX is inconsistent sometimes it does, sometimes it does not?Running Vista Ultimate with 4 megs and E6700, No raid, 680i board, 8800gtx.Please help.

Hi,An update on this: it looks like the LSGS METAR is more than 2 hours old, so ASX will not use it. Even at NOAA the latest METAR is the 1420Z METAR. When this happens ASX uses a blending of weather from surrounding stations.Thanks,Jimhttp://www.hifisim.com/banners/hifi-community-sigbanner.jpghttp://www.hifisim.com/

HiThx for the answer.It seams, the wheater for Sion to be again not correct. The actual METAR for LSGS shows inf Active Sky X 181755Z 06006KT 0100 -SN FZFG M05/M05 Q1011 ...In spring time freezing fog on the ground? That we have never in May in Central Europe. This can not a correct blendig of weather from surroundig stations. Thanks, Robert

Hi,NOAA and ASX for LIMH which is the next closest station with actual data:LIMH 181755Z 06006KT 0100 -SN FZFG VV001 M05/M05 Q1011 RMK MON INVIS VAL INVIS VIS MIN 0100At NOAA this is the latest METAR that they have for LSGS:LSGS 141420Z 25013KT 9999 BKN120 22/06 Q1010So things look to be working properly for now.Thanks,Jimhttp://www.hifisim.com/banners/hifi-community-sigbanner.jpghttp://www.hifisim.com/

HiThe METAR for LIMH Pian Rosa can maybe not correct too. This can be the reason of the problem for LSGS. LIMH is an Mountain-Airfield at 11444 ft. There is no Wheater-Office. The METAR on the NOAA-Site for LIMH 181855Z 05007KT 0300 -SN FZFG VV003 M05/M05 Q1011 RMK MON INVIS VAL INVIS VIS MIN 0300 can not be interpolated for Sion LSGS at 1581 ft for a correct resultat. ThanksRobert

HiThis airports are most open only between 0600 - 1800 UTC.METAR LSZG GRENCHEN 200950Z 07015KT 9999 SCT045 BKN073 15/07 Q1008 NOSIG= METAR LSZR ST GALLEN ALTENRHEIN 200950Z 05010KT 020V080 9999 BKN050 14/07 Q1009 NOSIG RMK H= METAR LSGS SION 200950Z 25006KT 210V280 9999 SCT030 BKN090 16/09 Q1005= LSGC LES EPLATURES 201020Z 04013KT 9000 FEW015 BKN025 BKN050 09/06 Q1009 WS RWY06=METAR LSZL LOCARNO 200950Z 25005KT 200V300 9999 FEW040 SCT150 19/14 Q1001 RMK BLU=METAR LSZS SAMEDAN 201020Z 33007KT 290V020 9999 OVC040 10/03 Q1006= METAR LSZC BUOCHS NIL= at NOAA the Metar for Sion is not actuell: LSGS 141420Z 25013KT 9999 BKN120 22/06 Q1010 at Active Sky X : LSGS 200955Z 05007KT 0100FZFG VV002 M06/M06 Q1009...I think, a solution for LSGS is, to use the Metar from LSGG. LSGG shows correct at NOAA. LSGG 201050Z 06010KT 020V120 9999 FEW027 BKN038 15/08 Q1007 NOSIG The Mountain Station LIMH can not be used for LSGS for a correct resultat.ThanksRobert
