ASV also gives:

01033/1835 SLP021 T03000222

but the TAF is a bit different <vbg> :

KGLS 231745Z 231818 36024G37KT P6SM VCSH FEW027CB SCT080 OVC250 FM2100

Having finished one flight in Aruba, I immediately set off for
Galveston, to see whether FSMeteo would pick up the hurricane. It
didn't! With about 40dme to Galveston it was showing a benevolent 16
knots. Some cloud cover but not spectacular. I switched to FS9's
RealWeather, to see how that fared. Not much better. Winds were a more
realistic 44 kts, from dead abeam, but this dropped to 21 on finals.
Worse, whenever I run RealWeather I get pauses every 15 seconds. I
thought it must be the (pretty basic) scenery, 'til I recalled this
weather always has that effect on my setup.

I think someone has previously commented that FSMeteo is nowhere near so
accurate in the USA as in Europe.
