Everyone has been talking about the wind and weather in the sim. . .
I’m beginning to think perhaps, the weather problem is NOT the flight sim.
So, I use sky vector to plan my flights. I am currently heading to Cozumel Int [MMCZ]
I have been looking at the wind on the metars that sky vector uses right now the current metar
there says this
" MMCZ 221446Z 04005KT 7SM BKN015CB BKN080 BKN250 28/25 A2981 RMK SLP100 52015 971 8/363 SC"
So on the edge of a tropical storm forming into a hurricane, It says the wind is only 5 knots.
in fact if you hover over ANY airport in North america, There is NO wind data, either 00, or max 4 kt.
The UK seems to have wind data available.
So, we know sky vector was here before this new flight sim. So whats the chances that both, sky vector , NOAA, and msfs all the same thing?
In fact Tallahassee looks to be having some weather. Here is the metar [I got these metars from the AWC, aviationweather . gov/metar/data/]
" KTLH 221453Z 00000KT 10SM TS FEW030CB SCT120 BKN250 23/20 A3001 RMK AO2 TSB13 SLP162 OCNL LTGICCG SE-SW TS SE-SW MOV NE T02280200 53023"
I think the problem exists beyond this sim.
