Chris,Did you set the options to change any scattered layers into broken layers when rain present in a metar report? Go through the options / preferences and look for that. Often times a metar report will have FEW or SCT in the low clouds, and for some reason, Fly! II ignores rain reports if the broken layer is above a report of FEW or SCT clouds. Now, you could manually go into the file and make the changes, or try to get infoMetar to do it. Me, I usually do up a flight path in infoMetar, download then thin out the reports, save the resultant thinned file and then edit it via Notepad. Many of my favorite places in Maine do not actually send an observation, so I have to cut/copy/paste to fill in the voids.may cheers!Ken Wood :-sun1Gateway 700X; Intel P4 2.4GHz; 512MB RAM; NVIDIA Ti4200 4X AGP 128MB; SB Audigy; Thrustmaster TopGun Fox 2 Pro Shock
