Weather over the Atlantic

I’m currently facing a 155 kt tailwind over the Atlantic, and it’s bucking the plane like a bull! Is weather like this common along the Atlantic jet routes?

You may find that in here

Most likely just Hurricane Ian.
@Aviation_Jerry posted you a thread where you may follow what happened.

I thought Hurricane Ian was closer to Florida and the Caribbean? I’m nowhere near that.

It does depend, seeing that this is a powerful Hurricane, it might bring winds into it self, just tell me where you are in the Atlantic and I will find out.

I just entered Jet Route U, currently on the second waypoint.

My callsign is American 104 Heavy

ah. Is that common over the Atlantic?

It depends on the weather


Try using this. The altitude slider (near) the bottom right can give a pretty good indication of live wind patterns.

This is normal and I forgot what its called but it pushes down and makes the midwest extremly cold

The jet stream.
