Not happy with FS9 weather

Recommended Posts

Well for the past 3 hours or so it's been raining pretty heavy here at KWWD. So I figured it would be kinda cool to fire up FS9 and fly from here to KPHL in some nasty weather.Well I clear temp internet files as was suggested and then download real weather through FS9--all I get is overcast and scattered clouds. Nothing like what is happening here in real time. I've noticed this before with the default weather program. Either Jeppeson is far from reality or the program just sucks period. I dunno.So, anybody recommend a beter alternative? I used to use FsMeteo in 2K2 but seems there are problems with that addon lately. Any ideas? Thanks!

I think we are all seeing that MS attempts at realistic weahter just dont work. WHile you can get it to look really nice, it doesn't get close to the real situations. Seems you cant make an overcast, visibilty changes between stations are not smooth but instantaneous, and realtime weather is so complicated as to drag the frames to a crawl. I stopped using it, and just set the weather how I want.Hornit
