I’m controlling at St. Louis and the winds keep randomly changing starting from 130 to 000 then 110.
I believe thats just a wind change, the 000 was it resetting.
But that just made me use the wrong runways. :(
it happens u cant control the wind u will be fine :)
What are the current wind speeds?
Right now it’s 110.
130 speed or direction
Real life TAF is currently variable at 4 for the next few hours.
Metar is 110 @ 3
Oh 110 is direction and speed is 3kts my bad.
oh i wanted to know cause thats worse than a hurricane
Oh my bad again 110.
There are moderate storms working their way towards KSTL. You can expect the METAR to change.
But I also have to keep changing runways which is never fun.
3kts is basically calm winds. Even if the winds turned a full 180, you have no need to worry.
In the manual, it states that runway changes should not be needed unless winds exceed 10kts in the opposite direction.
If the wind speed is under 10 knots, you can keep the runways you were using previously
@Kamryn beat me to it
You’ll be fine if you land on the wrong runway. The runway can be colored red, but as long as the winds are around 5 knots or lower, you can land.
Wait I didn’t know that I waisted those runway changes.
Red runways do not = wrong runways.
Keep it real™
KSEA was using 7kts tailwinds today, there is a reason we didn’t switch or we would require more workload and confusion to the pilots.
Alright, ended up switching last minute at KSEA btw
