Didn't see the weather I was expecting. Seattle.

Recommended Posts

I use Active Sky for P3d and looked forward to seeing the snow in Seattle, SeaTac, today.  After all, they had over 7 inches as of today.  Well, the weather representation using Active Sky showed only green grass and clouds.  I thought I'd see it snowing (it really was snowing supposedly there) and I would see some snow covered terrain.  Nope.  I know that when it's snowing here on the East coast, Active Sky usually represents it pretty well.  I wonder why the weather wasn't represented well on the West coast.

Any thoughts?

What was the metar data that AS was showing?

 Active Sky can only do so much and showing snow on the ground isn't one of them. As asked above, was it depicting snow from the metar?

 Seeing snow on the ground comes from the seasons set in the sim and the airport scenery etc.

Also my AS has a mind of it's own and tends to occasionally change the WX type from Live to historical, so I have to check before each flight what it is set to.

I've had this happen before, and it took a couple flights for me to realize that was happening.

I flew into SEA today with AS and it worked fine. The weather was perfectly miserable.

I'm based out of KPWT Bremerton in AH2 and it's always cloudy..... ALWAYS

Landed at KSEA few house ago and cloud cover was 20ft, my next base will be hot and sunny, maybe Orlando 🙂
