Hello,
During the preparation of a flight I had one red "meteo dot" in the middle of greens (cfr below)
Looking at the METAR I could not determine the cause of this....any idea why ?

METAR (cfr attached file):
LFBU 261000Z AUTO 24005KT 180V280 9999 ////// 22/14 Q1021

I would guess that it's because the METAR is reporting that it failed to establish the cloud status. The I doesn't mean IFR conditions, it means the METAR hasn't met your personal good or marginal conditions, so it's drawing your eye to it for further inspection.
