      When I first started they were helpful. I asked for my local small airport to be listed and they added it quite quickly.

But yesterday when the metar (and conditions) said "Light Snow" it didn't have snow falling, which leads me to believe that it didn't see an "-SN" observation from my PWS so it did not show it.
