Is it possible to check weather condition during flight?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to check weather condition during flight if I fly with real weather? For Active Sky it's present Weather Request Menu (Ctrl+F11) with direction of wind, temperatures, clouds raport - where I'm now.

Is it possible here?

Just open AS on a different screen or open browser. I can check weather and all kinds of things on my phone or second screen. Right now FS2020 is still a work in progress.

The weather data is provided by Meteoblue. Meteoblue have an app and a website. You can search by airport identifier.

For the time being we can use windy.com or any other app/tool however I believe Asobo should do something and implement METAR check to the sim. Even if we use live weather then no one can guarantee that we have same conditions in the sim as in real world.For IFR flying well it is a basic feature, same like metar refresh every 30minutes.

Not implemented directly into the sim. But the most accurate service to check is Meteoblue given that it is their own data controlling the sim weather.

You can tune in ATIS/AWOS on the COM frequencies.....  Just select a nearest (significant airport).  That should advise you of the approximate live weather.  Issue is I have tuned and heard weather reported at least reasonable to what I know is live at the time (metar reports from real world sites), but though the sim reports them audibly, the weather may or may not be present in the sim flying environment.  That based on my experience so far.

Glass cockpits have a weather and wind/direction  available. Hit PFD on main display, then Wind button and opt3 to get a wind and direction arrow on your main display. Hit map on the MFD and then nexrad to get weather. There's more but that should get you started

 

This video on the G1000 and AP covers a lot, including the other settings such as weather, etc.:

I don't think that's what they're asking for.  They're looking for a feature to find the weather at the destination airport so they can set up approach/arrival type stuff.  (I'm assuming based on the Activesky option they're showing)  Definitely would be nice to have especially for those doing long flights since the weather on landing could be entirely different than it was on takeoff 5, 6, 8, 10 hours before.
