There seems to be an issue with the depiction of METAR categories (good/marginal/bad) on the map.
My personal minima are set to less than the values in the local airfield METARS but they are being depicted as "bad".
See attachment.
Version 3.14.6.25294 on Android smartphone.
Merry Christmas!

I also noticed this. Here's a couple screenshots from a recent METAR (25 december) at Lugano, AD elevation is 915ft. Full METAR at the time was: "METAR LSZA 250950Z AUTO 36015G25KT 310V060 9999 FEW065 SCT075 BKN085 09/M07 Q1009="
(can't seem to add images today, so I leave a link to them here:

Any ideas what SD is interpreting?

We think this is a bug in the latest version that will incorrectly report scattered clouds as being below your personal thresholds, therefore bad weather. We will get an update out this week or next that solves the issue.
