Updated 25/03/23 - Created again from the original samples as I noticed some clipping on the wind sounds (crackling as it hit peak volume). More importantly the rain sounded overly processed and had lost its definition, which was likely caused by the extra processing required on the TSW2 sample to enable it to work with TSW3 & TSW4 . This rework now sounds as it was originally intended.
Here are some completely new sounds for in-cab wind and rain effects, alongside a re-working of the included Thunder sounds which were, in my opinion, too quiet. These are real world samples that ebb and flow, creating much more of an ambience and feel when driving in bad weather. Additionally, whereas real thunderstorms can often cause a house to rattle I felt the included thunderclap audio was too quiet. As such I've lifted the volume as much as I could (I would like to have gone louder but it was clipping) which again sounds much more realistic.
Note - For TSW2 there are no changes from the existing version and the file remains seperate.
