Temperature completely wrong

Recommended Posts

Here in Melbourne it is 42 C (108 F) today. Would be interesting to fly today in such conditions, but RW Connector shows 14 C, which is completely incorrect. What could be causing this? I have 15 minute updates on on X-Plane 11.11 for weather conditions.

ActiveSky 2016 for FSX shows the correct temperature. The airport in question is YMAV Avalon.

Seems like RWC is somehow confused with Melbourne, Florida perhaps...

Real Weather Connector has absolutely nothing to do with the temperature data. All it does is translate X-Plane's METAR data into cloud placements in SkyMaxx Pro.

Hi @sundog,

Thanks so much for the information. I had naively imagined that 'real weather' includes the temperature, but this was obviously a lack of knowledge on my part. Appreciated.

Looking deeper, it is for Avalon YMAV, a smaller airport near Melbourne. The METAR X-Plane receives has some data after '//' comments with temperature which it appears unable to parse. I'll look into it further from that angle.

All the best - great product!
