Problem with arrival weather

Recommended Posts

I use MSFS2002 weather without any problems until the last few flights or so I noticed. I found myself flying into severe head winds on final so on the last flignt from LAX to DFW I checked. The forcasted weather at DFW was SSE @4 and the winds aloft were NNW@ 24/112 at different levels. RC3 assigned us 31R and our gages on DF737 400 confirmed that with winds 320@24. At 4 miles from the TZ the winds suddenly changed to 154@4 which what was forcasted. RC3 is not picking up weather early enough or is not clearing out enroute weather. Anything I can do to remedy this? Otherwise the program is fantastic, Thanks, Tom

fsmeteo, activesky, weather center can all feed rc the arrival airports weather at 60 miles out. rc then makes the runway determination on that information.fs2002 weather has no such ability, and it sounds like you are being switched from global weather to local weather. unfortunately rc can not pick that up.

Can I put weather on local as I get close to destination or must I go to active sky, I really don't want to stay online while flying. Thanks Tom
