Brief description of the issue:
With live weather there is snow on the southwest of LOWI airport, altough temperatures are at 19°C. snow in may would be ok on mountain tops above the treeline, but snow is visible in very low altitudes. the odd thing is, that snow is not on the same levels on the northern mountains of LOWI airport and southeast.
if i select weather preset clear or scattered, etc… everything is green. if i manually set a snow layer, eg. 7… the snow evenly distributes all around the airport (as i would expect) and on every altitude level evenly. (also note on the screenshot that the snow at live weather is a little bit greyish compared to the manually set snow).
everything is also given in the screenshots (live metar data, aerial views, weather presets.

Provide Screenshot(s)/video(s) of the issue encountered:











Detail steps to reproduce the issue encountered:
Load a flight at LOWI and select live weather. changing weather preset to scattered or clear will remove the snow.

Accurate weather is broken in the sim. Always has been since release.

ahahah ecco!

Snow in the alps is generally total wrong in these months. No matter if LSZS (Samedan), LSGs (Sion), etc.
All the airports in the swiss alps are still covered in deep snow in the Sim. But IRL its 26c and definitely no snow again.

Yes, can confirm …

until november it is solved for sure and then there is no more snow
not many people have noticed it yet either according to the vote

I really want to know where the server gets the information of the snow coverage from.
Because Meteoblue’s maps certainly don’t show any snow anywhere near LOWI.

I find such contributions unnecessary. Otherwise nothing constructive to contribute? You make fun of the TO!?!

I live in the Alps and it’s a pretty annoying problem.We haven’t had any snow here for 2 months … , but it stubbornly persists in the MSFS. Another example of what doesn’t work in MSFS. It slowly hurts … And annoying

I voted, although I don’t have too many hopes that it will be repaired. At the moment they seem to be busy with other “things”

Could it be that you confused Meteoblue with Bing?

My bingmap data is minimum 1 year old.

There was a construction site right in front of my house last year, the construction has now been completed, only in the MSFS (Bing) it is still displayed as a construction site.

I live 5 km away from LSZS and every time I fly home there is snow, should I cry because of that? I have not claimed in the release that the snow cover was fixed complain to ASOBO and create a tiket or take it with humor
censoring is also a solution

I’m not confusing anything. Meteoblue has the data for current snowcoverage and depth.
But for whatever reason the sim doesn’t read that properly.

This is new to me, thanks for the info.

Until now I thought that Meteoblue is all about weather data.

Didn’t they fix the problem in the SU3 update?
I think at least it was the SU3 update, but I’m not sure anymore…

We never stop learning;)

+27c at Innsbruck right now, and there is still snow nearby to the airport! Ridiculous.

Looks that it fixed now, in my case.

EDIT: Or not :wink:


no it is not fixed is at my home it still has snow although it was warm today in real 25 degrees

is already slowly embarrassing

Jupp must agree with you, I was wrong.
