Microsoft and Asobo Studio have given us some extremely in depth looks into how they’re putting together the absurdly realistic Microsoft Flight Simulator, and in the latest video it’s weather forecasting that’s in the spotlight. It’s a dense eight-minute science class, but if you’re in the mood for something more breezy, you can just gawk at all the striking footage of clouds, mountains and cities. 

Like the Feature Discovery series, the latest video doesn’t skimp on the details. The Flight Sim team is working with the weather data company Meteoblue, and it’s co-founder Mathias D. Muller gives an enthusiastic explanation of how it gathers data and predicts the weather, and how it’s used in the game.
