Wx Radar Data

Recommended Posts

Anyone know how flightmax and some other addons get data on the relative locations, densities,dimensions, etc. of clouds for weather radar?

There's no way at all to get the actual FS cloud graphics locations, in any version of FS. I think that's pretty far off (according to MS). All any weather radar can do it make a sort of representation based on the METAR station reports within its range. It will be doing that from the METAR reports, either in a .WX file, or from one of the weather programs.
