Weather Force 2020 is a METAR-Based Dynamic Real-Time Weather Engine for the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. By utilizing inter-process communication with the simulator via fine granular control, you will experience automated, dynamic, and smooth weather transitions from real-world reporting METAR stations. Weather Force also includes a wide range of proprietary dynamic, changing (non-static) weather scenarios. These scenarios are unlike the static weather presets that ship with Microsoft Flight Simulator.
REX Simulations has released Technical Update 1 for the Weather Force 2020, which updates the software version to 6.0.2020.1005. For installation instructions visit their website here.
