Be grateful. Some are complaining of too much rain. I like the randomness of it all and that we get to have a unique experience from each other. My biggest worry would be if CM went and scripted it due to too many complaints!

People weather experience has been the same for years and CM haven’t changed anything. It’s just average chance of rain. Some get more than others. Luck of the draw and I too like it.

I have had a couple of full wet,a fair amount of transitional races and 2 damp track races so I a happy with that. I do enjoy the weather system this year.

Up to Spain and not a single drop of rain apart from the last 5 mins of fp1 (50% races) . Wasn't enough to need wets.

I'm absolutely sick of rain. Every weekend has had at least 2 sessions of rain in my career mode .it makes things horrendous trying to complete the practice programmes and messes up set up testing and whatnot . Every. Single .weekend .(except Bahrain)

I have had a wet FP1 for 5 race weekends in a row now... Overall, I think I've only had 3 fully dry weekends and I'm at Hungary...

Another patch and no option to choose weather in career or championship mode. Hilarious since weather probability is broken.

Why do you think it’s broken? I never had any problems with the weather in 2017 or 2018. Maybe you have only bad luck with randomness.

Because I have done over 20 championship simulations and there is no major variance in the weather, approximately 5% variance of 20 seasons. Wet weather probability is around 32-36%. 

And since Codemasters haven't done a single reply makes sense, since they know that it's way too high.

And what i told you is, thats your calculation which doesn’t mean it’s broken. There are enough player which had one wet race after ten races. Thats 10%. 
Look at the season from Aarava or Tiametmarduk on youtube. There is no much rain. 
Why should a game patched, because you only think it’s broken?
I started the career four times and everytime the weather situation is different for the first races. Seem like random weather still works fine.

Too dry, too wet... Has anyone actually gone through 10 seasons yet and have all of them been too wet or dry? I sound like a broken record but again an issue that isn't an issue..

The Tia t-cam guy did short races, can't really compare to my 100% races stats. But he had 5/21 wet races, and just add 2 more that have rain after 50% distance and that add up to 33% wet.

Yes you have done 20 seasons but you are one guy compared to thousands of players. Great statistics. 
I never felt the weather system is broken, but maybe your meaning counts more because you are doing 100% races and use cockpit cam.

Yes I am one of a few thousands, but neither you or I have their stats. 
Yeah I agree, maybe my meaning counts more since I do 100% races and cockpit cam.

It is strange that there's no option for manual weather in career mode.

I haven't really had that much rain in my career mode yet but that doesn't really mean anything. It kind of hits in spurts and I end up having a season that is just almost completely rained on.

It changes from season to season 1 season no rain next could have rain in most races the need to have it randomised or could end up with same weather conditions every year just cause ur experience rain a lot in one season u might not get any the next which is better than having it scripted

I am not 100% sure how it works but from what I have seen each race is broken down into 15 min sections. The start and end of these sections have a cross over period that is controlled by the next section. For example if it's dry the only option for the next section is another dry period or light rain. If it's heavy rain then the 2 options are light rain or monsoon. Because of this I think if you have wet start picked for start of race it often gets caught in staying with rain as it needs to pick light rain then dry. Its like a ladder that you can only take 1 step at a time and you have a certain % chance of taking a step up or step down.

I have not seen many rain in my career but I know it is not broken because there are people that have had an entire season of rain. This means it must be random
