New FAQ Request

Weather snapshots have a timestamp, but a lot of people are confused about how they relate to the flight path observed. One Facebook thread showed an enroute timestamp of 13:10 CDT, then after the flight landed the timestamp was 11:45 CDT, about the midpoint of the flight. People draw conclusions about weather along the flightpath, and if you had an answer to how those are generated it would be helpful to us all GA armchair quarterbacks. Thanks for your consideration.
