VRC METAR updates delayed?

Hi, I noticed, when listening to RW ATIS at JFK and other airports, that VRC is usually an entire update late when it comes to METAR, this is especially problematic when I want to use the RW ATIS as my voice ATIS. What does VRC use as a source for its METAR, because real-time updates are always ahead. Cheers.

VRC uses the VATSIM servers as the weather source, just like SB3 and FSInn do, so if there is any delay in VRC's weather, the same delay will apply for pilots, so I would say that using real world ATIS recordings is not the way to go.
