    and has been for years.... there is a "sticky" up at the top of this page that describes the issue a bit more.
    This one and the others are there for a reason: this question keeps getting asked and the answer is never going to change. MS quit supporting the game.

    You will need an after-market app for your real world weather.

    This is FSXWX, the freeware add-on I was referring to not FSX weather

    Same for me. Also the official site plane-pics.de is unreacheable

    Not working for me either since yesterday. Connects to the sim properly but fails to download the weather from the server. Hope this is not the end of such an amazing piece of software

    Same here. I refuse to pay for an add-on, as I've sunk enough into MS for the last 33 years.

    It's a shame. When everybody got greedy and wanted to charge for add-ons, that the precise reason MS dropped FS. If they weren't going to make any money off the add-ons, they decided they'd quit making it. Greed sucks...

    Still down. However this already happened in the past but always came back up after a little time. Maybe something related to their server engine or traffic limits overcoming. Crossing fingers, hoping it will be reacheable again soon.
    In the meantime I'm using FSRealWX Lite. Good free alternative for now.
