Hi Nick,I've noticed that in 2002 and 2004. FS goes to Jep's site and downloads whatever is there at the time....there are quite a few times that I "think" Jeps database is a day or so behind, and then, there are days when it is spot on! For instance, last night I flew from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas. Here in Salt lake we had thunderstorms and a ceiling of about 10k....Jeps weather reported light winds, scattered clouds at 15k, and 30 mile vis! That would have been fine if it was 2pm, but this was 7! Ken

At our local airport the temp always reports as 56 degrees; it's been in the low 80's around here. I try redownloading the weather but always get 56 deg. I wish there was a way to load METAR files so we could get the weather from other sources. I don't know if the problem lies with Jeppensen's data or FS2004.Scott
