Discrepancy between official METAR and ASN in live wx mode

Not exactly, but I did have an issue where the weather in game did not match the METAR that either ASN or real world METARs were showing. ASN and real world METARS matched up and showed clear skies with 10 mile visibility but in the sim I had clouds all the way down to 800 feet and about 2 mile visibility. Not sure exactly what caused it but it hasn't happened again yet.

I am now starting to have the same issue, the discrepancy is huge too. The METAR from VATSIM and from real world sources will show the altimeter at KDCA as 30.16 while ASN is showing it and inserting into my game as 30.43. This presents an issue because when I am flying on VATSIM the sim thinks the barometric pressure is 30.43 while the VATSIM controller is expecting my altimeter to be set to 30.16. I have checked to make sure ASN is in Live Weather Mode and it still gives me way different weather conditions.

Same issue I noticed tonight at GTF.. ASN and P3D were giving me winds out of 210 at 20+kts while the real life METAR and TAF were mostly calm. Any ideas?

Disregard my comment, somehow mine got set to manual somehow. Live mode appears working correctly now.
