Icon from Metar
« on: January 26, 2019, 01:28:35 PM »
I have been following the recent discussion on the Icon from Metar issues.  I have spotted a potential bug in that when an auto produced metar shows a cloud group with TCU at the end, this results in any rain in the metar being ignored.  Instead, a 'mostly cloudy' icon is produced. I have included a couple of screenshots to show the issue.

Would do Brian, but there is nothing contained in the WD Metar folder.  It seems that the program only makes use of the current data and then disposes of it, or am I missing something?

WD should be downloading the metar to the folder as set in the metar download directory in the metar download setup

Probably unrelated,  but metars stopped being downloaded after 1350 UTC today. The tafs are still coming in, showing that the download procedure is still working. Metars are still available from the NOAA website so its not clear what the problem is.

Exactly the same here. (Coincidentally, I updated to 10.37S90 this morning, but that's obviously not the reason!)
It's meant to be fun. . .
