Did u set your max vis correctly in asn?

My settings are "Realism" that come with ASN.

Hi,

 

By default FSX uses a haze layer (with varying levels of opacity based on surface visibility) to depict these conditions (the transition from a lower surface visibility to a higher upper visibility). Unfortunately, this haze layer has some very significant drawbacks (it follows the aircraft, it intersects with mountains in a very ugly way etc). That's the reason ASN (and I assume other weather engines) give the option to disable it (this is the default behavior in ASN). 

 

This leaves however these hazy conditions depicted as is shown in your screenshots. We acknowledge that this solution is however not optimal. The best way of solving this is by using the volumetric fog (only present in P3D however). For fsx we've been working towards improving the whole haze depiction (in fact the related changes have already been implemented in ASN and are scheduled to be part of the upcoming SP1).
