Wrong weather in New Zealand

Recommended Posts

Hello all !Just bought ASE a week ago , been looking a long time for a program like that.With the release of ORBX's NZSI, i was very excited to fly in that region and wanted the mostaccurate weather.i just had my first flight from NZLX to NZQN , a short 29 nm to test the new scenery and , of course, ASE.Now, according to ASE's report at NZQN, temp. shows 0,3 /-5 with scattered clouds, wind speed at 0 and im locked to the closest station.So decided to compare that report to one i found on the internet at metservice.com and found out that NZQN's temp is 23 c.partlycloudy with winds a 13 , gust at 20 !I want to know if i'm using this program correctly.Here is my setting; Option-Cloud option- Prevent cloud redraws checked.FSX specific-Depiction mode-Direct weather control checkedWhen i want to load the latest weather, i go to Historical-i use Offline static data-Single date and time.Leave the Metar download GMT date and time as it is and press the download buttom, and then after i openFSX and fly.Just hope im doing the things right and need your advice about the temperature difference.Excuse my englishWolf

I can confirm similar situation. All my flights thus far in NZ (using ASE) are in similar conditions has stated above: no wind and temps around 0 celcius, quite different than rw conditions at time of flight. First time this occurs for me. But then again, first time I "fly" in NZ also
