That is ... awesome. Light mud, heavy mud, then weather centers with heavy snow moving across, and apparently also the terrain below plays a role in the weather effects (see the alps). Very promising...

Nice find, Pelton!

I remember a while back, when I suggested we needed a "light mud" weather effect, one person scoffed at me, asking what is light mud, like it was a stupid idea. I guess if he buys WITW, he will have his answer!

Pelton, its been up at least a week- I first saw it from the WITW thread here in these forums. Its one of Joel's posts where he said his 15 yr old son helped build the website :)
This weather simulator is a MUST have for WITE2.

Me? Really? I thought it did concur with you and others that the weather/ground conditions could use a few more shades of grey... or brown, whatever? If it didn't come over that way, this is at least what I thought...

Does this level of granularity in the weather model mean there won't be a non-random weather setting?

If the weather model will really work, non-random will be useless. You can see cyclones/anticyclones in the video and I assume sudden mud everywhere can not happen. You can do more or less accurate forecast for next turn which will be not based on some random rolls and weather table like in WitE.

I wonder how fog of war should factor into knowledge of weather conditions over enemy territory.
How accurate would Axis knowledge of weather conditions over Soviet territory be?
Did the Western Allies share meteorological data with the Soviets?

Its better to not go down that road because we'll end up with having a war targeting weather stations in the polar regions and so on...

Umm, I didn't say it was you (I checked, it was not you).
So, we will just have to agree to agree :)

Looking good.It's a much needed improvement to the game.
Hopefully the first winter wont be set in stone for WITE 2.What might have happened given a more normal winter, or even an exceptionally mild one, is one of the most interesting questions that the game can examine.
