Hi,The wind direction at lsgg is 215 , you didn't see it on the picture? It's clear...no?Thanks Christian

I think you're right Chris!The text METAR says 050 at 10 and I don't think that you'd see the variable wind interval spaced over a full 270 degrees, whereas the 90 degrees as understood by you (and proven by the 050/10!) is the correct interpretation.So - sorry Jim, but I think you're wrong... ;-)Cheers,S

>The METAR was 350V80. What does that mean? That the winds>were VARIABLE betweem 350 and 80 degrees. Half of that is>215!!>How is that wrong??>>Thanks,>Jim>No Jim, the METAR reads: "Wind 050 degrees at 10 knots, varying between 350 and 080 degrees..." So the general wind direction was from the NE and not SWThis is from http://www.met.tamu.edu/class/METAR/metar-pg6.html (my highlighting of the word clockwise):Variable wind direction with wind speed greater than 6 knots shall be coded in the format, dndndnVdx dxdx. The variable wind direction group shall immediately follow the wind group. The directional variability shall be coded in a clockwise direction. For example, if the wind is variable from 180 to 240 at 10 knots, it would be coded "21010KT 180V240".Cheers,S

Hi,I'm sorry but the error is always here with the update SP1.you can verify but only when the wind cross 360

I wonder if this glitch about figuring out the opposite direction of the average wind explains much of the instability of wind shifts reported in other threads, or if this is a whole different issue...

Hi Christian,Just an FYI it is best to start a new thread instead of jumping on an old one that was presumed closed... sometimes things get missed.Anyhow, I am unable to duplicate this behavior at first look, but we have it on the list for a detailed investigation.If you have an .PLN files with a particular wx date/time that demonstrates this problem, please send to us at support@hifisim.com.. it would be much appreciated!Best,
