Live weather accuracy significantly WORSE post 1.15.10 patch

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looks like live weather in the sim is currently fed by data that's 24 hours old. Matches my observation from today's flight into EDDH: VCSH and FEW033CB in the METAR, and the weather in sim was a solid cloud formation from 2.500 ft. up to 23.000 ft. and heavy rain all over northern germany, exactly like it was yesterday. Hopefully it's only a server issue and can be fixed quickly, however it surely doesn't hurt to raise awareness at MS/ASOBO. Here's a thread to upvote, and if you have observed similar issues and don't mind file a Zendesk report as well. Thanks.

I see the same thing in London: it was raining heavily yesterday here, and today is sunny; just loaded up EGLC in the sim and it's overcast and raining.

Saw the same thing with the Atlanta area yesterday.  The official weather there was reported sunny/partly cloudy but in the sim there were major thunderstorms covering a wide area... Asobo needs to ditch whatever service their using.

I posted a message about this along with some related screenshots in another topic here on Avsim a few minutes ago:

I'm seeing more accuracy since the update, I live about 3 miles from the local airport and so far, the conditions in the sim have matched what I see out my window.  Yesterday we had a line of rain pass through, changing the partly cloudy skies to rain for a while then clearing up.  Essentially the same weather was depicted in the sim.  So far here (the SE United States) it's more much more accurate than it was before. 

I suspect this is related to the accuracy of the MeteoBlue weather model in local areas so I'm not surprised to see other with different experiences.

You might want to check/report the reported wind, baro pressure, and temperature as well. MSFS should be taking the quantitative data directly from the R/W METAR, while the sky conditions are depicted based on the METEOBLUE global model.

If one's right and the other wrong, it might help the debugging process for ASOBO. FWIW, it's also raining at EGLC on my system at 1700Z, but the QNH is identical to the current METAR. Wind and temp are a bit off, but the in-sim data may be an hour old.

 

EDIT

I just ran this test again using REX Weather Force. The in-sim weather is depicted correctly as a sunny day. The quantitative information is close to that depicted by the Live Weather option in the sim.

Your current experiences and my current experiences match.

Same! Total joke of a game. KMTN now real world - lovely day with scattered clouds around 6K. Load up this GAME and see yesterday's lunch time weather of pouring rain.

Yes the live weather is totally bogus now. I am in Mississippi, calling for partly cloudy, and in MSFS it is teaming rain.

For those seeing real current weather and those who are seeing yesterdays weather ... can you please check to see if you are in the same sim?

Now that is a wee bit sarcastic, but it does highlight the ongoing saga of this sim affecting people differently. This has been an inherent part of this sim since release and nothing seems to be changing in this regard.

I am really looking forward to:

1. a problem free world/Sim/hotfix update, and,

2. The same Simulator being released to all,  preferably one that is problem free.

I am a patient man but I fear this is going to take a long long time LOL

I keep hoping Asobo will concentrate on getting a base sim that is stable and efficient, with elemental simulation elements rendered appropriately (Weather, terrain and textures and airframe aerodynamics) BEFORE adding new feature sets that are mostly just more unfinished fluff.

Im not one of their bean counters, but I’m still hoping…

Way off in the Boston area as well.  Currently few clouds at 6,000 and overcast at 25,000 outside my window.  In the sim its pouring absolute buckets.

Yes, was flying around KJAN on the day of the patch and…..

The lightning in non towering cumulus clouds is back or never went away. 
Skies were clearing after some nasty weather here on Tuesday. The “clearing” depiction, I thought was ok, but then, flash, boom, bang.
 

They say it’s not the “big” fix but what have they actually fixed?  I’d rather it stay broken then for them to say they’ve fixed something only to see it’s not.

I do hope the “big” fix works.  Such a shame.

Meteoblue had no rain and a few clouds on their website for Québec and Montréal, clearer towards the latter. Planned flight as VFR. Fired up the sim with no changes to settings but with the dreaded hot fix installed. CYQB had 8 octas of low cloud and pouring rain. So much for a VFR flight.

Question: How to find out if an airport and vicinity is VFR post hot fix?

Just checked here (Netherlands) and Live Weather marches what I see outside.

Checked Frankfurt in MSFS and it matches with what I see in FR24.
