Please explain the weather

Great! Seeing that threads in the “Bugs” section are being merged without adding the votes of the closed threads makes me wonder about the accuracy of the snapshots. I am aware that in an ideal world ONE thread would exits for ONE problem. But that’s far from reality. As I have pointed out in another thread regarding the “lightning in clear skies” issue (weather-related - isn’t it?) the current snapshot only lists a fraction of the real votes regarding the problem.
And for this topic, I have found 1794 votes until now, and that would make this topic #1 on the Bugs list by far:
Live Weather and Wind Readings are Not accurate (553)
Live weather is not working (416) closed on October 13th and merged with above
[Consolidated Vote] Live Weather Issues (v1.9.5.0) (323)

WEATHER is still NOT working correctly! (68)
Live weather and live traffic not working? (65)
Live weather: No low visibility modelled - MeteoBlue Data itself seems to be wrong! (41)
LIVE Weather Issues on second flight (38)
Live Weather: ATIS does not match conditions (ex. sim shows overcast, atis reports few) (24)
