At the moment, Axis has the advantage of knowing what the weather will be in the allies turn, and the allies have to guess at the weather next turn, unless it is going to be 100% something.

However, the allies had by far the greater ability to provide accurate weather forecasts because the weather in western Europe almost always comes in from the Atlantic, and the bad weather in Russia starts in the arctic circle. The axis powers obviously had little capacity to gather much info about the weather in those areas.

Therefore whilst the weather in any turn has to be the same for both, the allies should be informed what the weather will be in the next turn as part of their start of turn reports, like they do in WiTE2 now (which was the inspiration for this post).

What I don't know is weather (sorry) it is an easy change to make and therefore worthy of Alvaro's time.

Completely agree, it would be a great addition, this forecast could be more reliable for Allies and less for Axis.

Nice addition indeed but where to place it on the existing UI without revamping eveything?

Hahahaha. You're right, it seems like a big problem, a file attached to the ´´turn report´´ with a map with the weather forecast would cheer my eyes (and it would waste ink from my printer), but I guess it's not possible, maybe one more idea for WP2?
