METAR Fog Inaccurate

Is it me or is fog, not matching the METAR currently in place. Had this issue yesterday and is same today at KATL. METAR indicates OVC 200ft however. Instead of being overcast throughout the approach till 200ft, I’ve found the fog to only overcast passing 300ft.

OVC200 means that the overcast cloud layer begins at 20’000ft and not at 200ft.

OVC200 is overcast at FL200, so I’m not sure what METAR you saw…

Sorry. I meant overcast 200ft when I wrote that.
