If the weather changes significantly, the controllers will push a new ATIS/METAR as a special report.




Don't forget these things aren't locked in time in the sim world. The pilot's weather can update live or 30 minutes later depending on sim and weather program settings, while PE controllers get weather updates 5-10 minutes late.
