Zwift weather forecasts and sunrise/sunset times?

(Neil) #1

Sorry if this information is available somewhee and I have missed it, but it there anywhere I can go to find out what the weather is going to be like over the next few hours (say in Watopia or London), and particularly when the sunrise and sunset times are? It might affect when I choose to start a ride, especially in the middle of winter when part of what I’m wanting from Zwift is the simulated experience of riding in daylight in sunny weather… :wink:

Nothing worse than turning to Zwift for a bit of escapism from darkness and rain in the real world to find that the weather is the same there too… :slight_smile:

Zwift is like New England. If you don’t like the weather, wait 5 minutes.

Seriously though, the sun rises and sets in (or vice versa) much faster than IRL and the rain never seems to last more than a few minutes.

Just keep riding.

Also bear in mind, IIRC, that the weather is different for different people. It’s randomised I think.

Really? I didn’t know that… That’s quite surprising as it would seem to act against the whole social / shared experience aspect of Zwift.

I’m not 100% sure on that, but there’s been anecdotal evidence of day/night randomisation at least.

It might not be the same these days, but I’m fairly sure I’ve seen examples where one person’s riding in the rain and another isn’t.

I thought everything had been synchronized in one of the recent updates (day/night and weather).

Maybe. I watched a few POV streams of the British nationals qualifier and those all looked in sync.
