On my flight from Bridgeport to Merida I observed strange weather depiction. Here is Condition Report from ASP3D v7900 :



Here is the METAR downloaded by FSL A320 - as You can see, +TSRA is missing :



Rain from the blue sky :





And here, raining from almost blue sky in the video :


In the heavy rain visibility is never 9999+ meters. It is simply impossible for water droplets and moisture in the air. Is it problem in the METAR report from TBPB meteo station ? Because at https://www.aviationweather.gov/metar/data?ids=TBPB&format=raw&hours=96&taf=on&layout=on
I found this report :
TBPB 061600Z 11010KT 9999 FEW018CB 31/24 Q1013 NOSIG
Same METAR report is in the attached log.

What is wrong ?

Problem solved, I had "Prevent thunderstorms when CB reported" unchecked.
Sorry for my incompetence :mad:
