No SIGMET plotting?

When clicking on a SIGMET in the weather tab, wondering why it only highlights the affected FIR region as opposed to the actual area in the SIGMET coordinates.

I find myself switching to skyvector.com to achieve this which seems to be able to show this quite nicely.

Why not in SD?

Thanks!

It is not possible to always do this accurately every time, so at present we do not attempt it. What region are you looking at?

UK & France

What's the problem with the coordinates in the SIGMET? They always seem to be there and like I said skyvector.com does it fine.

Thanks.

The coordinates do not always describe a polygon, and they are often more of a plain-text description such as "north of 52N within the London FIR" etc.

I must have been lucky as all the ones I happen to have looked at have all been polygons.

Could you plot the polygon if it's there at least? highlighting the whole FIR is more or less useless

We will make a note to research the scope of this as a development task at some point in the near future.

any update on this? 

‌‌SIGMET04 active right now:

SEVERE MOUNTAIN WAVES OBSERVED WI N5500 W00100 - N5500 W00021 - N5410 W00024 - N5333 W00521 - N5500 W00525 - N5500 W00100 FL050/250 STATIONARY NO CHANGE‌‌

skyvector plots this fine showing it in the north of england‌ but SD plots the whole FIR so not very useful

thank you!‌‌

You will see lots of attention having been paid to SIGMET in the forthcoming 3.12.4 release.
