The WX Images page allows you to view many kinds of weather related images from the internet. This includes doppler radar, forecast, synoptic, visual and infrared satellite, cloud cover, severe weather alert, wind, temperature, thunderstorm, lightening strike, QNH, MSL and freezing level images, to name a few. These images are relatively easy to find using Google or any other search engine that returns images (see notes in Weather Folder - Setup section).

The first major civil aircraft designed and built by Fokker after WW II was the F27. During 1950, Fokker determined what operators would like for a DC-3 replacement, and they developed the P.275 concept, with a shoulder-height wing, powered by a pair of turboprops. By 1953, this had developed into the F27 with Rolls-Royce Dart engines, seating 32 passengers in a pressurized cabin and capable of operating from small airfields. The Dutch government was so confident that Fokker had a winner that they funded the production of two flying and two test aircraft. The prototype flew on November 24, 1955, and the project soon began to yield orders. Fairchild Aircraft also saw the plane's potential, and secured a license-production agreement for airlines in the United States. The Fairchild machines had a longer nose for weather radar, extra fuel tankage, American instrumentation, and seating for up to 40. This version received its FAA Type Approval on July 16, 1958. The F27/F-27 went on to become the best selling turboprop aircraft, with over 700 built.

Starting with Microsoft Flight Simulator 2000, you can use the Real-World Weather feature. You can download "real-world" weather data from the Internet and display the data in the flight simulation.Microsoft Flight Simulator 2004 also included a new feature that is named "Dynamic Weather." The Dynamic Weather feature in Flight Simulator 2004 affects the formation or the dissipation of clouds, the onset of precipitation, and the movement of frontal systems.For more information about the weather features that are available in Flight Simulator and about how to use them, see the online documentation that is provided with your copy of Microsoft Flight Simulator.

If you are using Flight Simulator 2004 and you feel that weather is changing at the wrong pace or is too static, you may have to adjust the Dynamic Weather feature settings. When the Rate at which weather changes over time slider is set to None, the weather in Flight Simulator 2004 remains the way that you set it in theUser-defined weather dialog box or as it was downloaded from the Internet. When this option is set to Mild,Medium, High, or Extreme, the weather conditions change dynamically depending on the atmospheric conditions that are set in the Weather dialog box. To change the setting for the Rate at which weather changes over time slider, follow these steps:

Flight Simulator 2004 also added a feature that permits you to download a new snapshot of real-world weather data every 15 minutes. To download real-world weather data every 15 minutes, follow these steps:

Weather stations in Flight Simulator are located in the same places as real-world weather stations. Real-world weather is only downloaded to those locations in Flight Simulator. If there is no weather station in the real world near your favorite airport, there is no data to download to Flight Simulator. Weather conditions will be interpolated between the weather stations that are nearest to your airport.Real-world weather data can only be gathered as frequently as the real-world stations report. Some stations report every 15 minutes, while others report every hour or every few hours.Flight Simulator real-world weather may be slightly different from what other sources report. For example, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) report may have different information. Different weather services may use different reporting structures. There are other limitations to the way that weather information is gathered and is reported. For example, METeorological Aerodrome Reports (METARs) do not provide information about upper-level clouds if the lowest observed ceiling is overcast. In that case, only the lowest reported layer is in the data that is downloaded to Flight Simulator.If you download real-world weather data and then customize the conditions in user-defined weather, the effects of the Real-World Weather feature will be redistributed and diluted to a degree. This does not mean that it is best not to modify the weather, just be aware that the results are not predictable.For more information about how to troubleshoot problems with the Real-World Weather feature, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base: 350c69d7ab
