The real time weather for my sim won't update, it will only use the weather from my last session. Before it was working perfectly until I had set up a weather with low visibility.

NOAA has changed the file format. Perhaps that is the issue

PFPX had the same issue which has now been fixed

ISSUE: NOAA WEATHER SERVERS ISSUE
VALID: 2014012216Z - 2014012217Z
ISSUED BY: REED STOUGH

Due to a change in a weather file format from NOAA,

The problem is that my source didn't just change format. Some airport weather info is just not available anymore. Let's wait for a while as this might be maintenance related. If the issue is not solved after a while I will start looking for alternative source ;)

I am having a similar issue at LGSO.

The METAR does not specify visibility and in GATC it says Visibility 0 so all planes can't land due to "fog".....

The METAR does not specify visibility for this airport....

Hi nammurg.

I am surprised that you got any weather at all... It should all work well now - server side fix.

Btw, pretty rough weather at LGSO today: LGSO 121650Z 36022G32KT 9999 SCT014 SCT020 09/05 Q1016
