i've been hovering over KATL for the last 24 (at least) hours watching the AI craft... the weather seems to be working just fine and getting regular updates as needed...

It could be an oddity in a METAR string that isn't getting parsed, so it's important to find the airport. Time is of the essence because it might not have the problem if it expires.

you got that right but it appears the OP is not on the forums to provide the information...

We might need this (historic METAR). I'll leave it here for reference ...
