RESOLVED Real-Time Weather Not Correct In Prepar3D According To Metar Data

Recommended Posts

I am using REX Weather Plus Overdrive only for real-time weather and I am using Rex4 for the textures in Prepar3d.

 

Everything appears to load with no issues, but when the weather loads, there are clouds when the Metar data shows CLR.

 

I loaded up OPUS and Active Sky and both are showing zero clouds.

 

I also went outside and verified, there are no clouds.

 

I turned of all textures in REX Plus Overdrive 

I turned of all fog in REX Plus Overdrive

Download VATSIM is off

I am not using WX Plus.

 

I would rather use REX then OPUS or Active Sky, but it seems that REX is not reading the METAR data correctly.

 

Am I missing something?????? :-(

Can you please post a screen shot of your Weather Settings, Visibility, Winds, and Clouds within the Configuration Manager of REX? Also, what was the airport you were at, time, and day that you noticed this?

I found the issue and the resolution to the problem I was experiencing.

 

Cirrus clouds and cumulus clouds were showing when the Metar report showed CLR.

 

I went into >Configuration Manager > Clouds

 

Unchecked >Enable global cirrus cloud deck

Unchecked>Enable global cumulus clouds

 

I am good to go now. Thanks for keeping this open while I figured out what settings I needed to correct.
