welcome to FlyerTalk. I would move this to another forum since it is really not a trip report, but a question about the workings of ATC. You have received some accurate answers - the weather in route is just as important as the weather in your beginning and ending cities. I'm going to close this in light of the explanations, but if you would like further explanation, feel free to send me a private message and I can have an air traffic controller explain further, iif you'd like.
