Does IFATC Control the Weather?

I know this sounds weird and probably not true but just an observation of random anomalies.

It’s happened from ATL to SLC to LGA and I see the date/time group of METAR reports 2 or so hours old while ATC active but then when ATC stops trying to heard cats or just needs to leave for some reason the ATIS updates…

No, the weather is automatically updated with live weather

No, IFATC controllers can’t control weather. They can only update ATIS as the weather automatically updates.

No they don’t controll the weather, it’s automatic like in IRL

No, unfortunately we cannot control the weather. IF weather is based off real world weather… which is controlled by the government.

Except those companies that actually say they modify weather and show off their equipment and aircraft and have NOAA contracts lol … I laugh, but you can look them up on FlightAware

Well no if you read @Darius_Glover post they don’t

Yeah, basically my question was answered from an IF point of Data though weather seems to be an anomaly which usually centers around data pulls from IRL sources

Ok fine just forget it

Question has been answered.
