    Hi,

    My first post so hi all :)

    I'm new to rF2 and I am not sure how weather system works. So i've setup 25min practice session and I've set first weather 'rectangle' to sunny day, 2nd to small clouds and little rain (50% chance), 3rd to more clouds and higher rain chance and finally last one to clouds and 90% chance of rain.
    I had blue sky for the whole 25min session. What I did wrong?

    It's possible you set the wrong session, race instead of practice for example.

    no, I setup practice only session similar to this one:

    and after loading track I can see that forecast (if it's forecast) looks quite sunny:
    20190712180555_1.jpg
    and the whole practice session was sunny, maybe few small clouds here and there.
    I don't know if it's connected but few days ago I've used https://forum.studio-397.com/index.php?threads/weatherplugin.58614/ plugin (I wasn't using it during this session).

    Can someone explain me how this weather system SHOULD work?

    Did the session actually end after 25min? Picking practice only used to turn the session into a 30 hour testing session, so each weather panel lasts for 6 hours instead of 5 minutes. If that's the case then just tick either the race or qualifying to on and then it should work as intended.

    I think I've set it up to 20 minutes and after 20 minutes checkerd flag popped up in the corner, so I think that session was over.

    [Edit] my second session was set to 20min, the first one was 25

    No luck :/
    I've ticked pratice, quali and race, but I've scripted the weather in oposite way this time, to start with rain and end with sun. For the whole practice session it was raining :/
    and the forecast showed me that it should be sun for the whole session:

    Is scripted weather working for you guys? Maybe I should do clean install or something?

    Glad you got it sorted. And yup, that's the forecast for the race itself.

    Have you tried manually editing the wet file for the track?
