Is anyone else having problems with the weather and lighting?

I'll have a storm, blue sky and three different kinds of lighting within 10 seconds at times. When a sunset comes, its over in 10 seconds and the lighting flickers to dark like someone turned off a switch. The moon is pretty weird too at times, I have seen it literally move across half the sky in a couple of seconds, like a spaceship passing by lol.

Has anyone else noticed this, is it my game that is buggy or is it intended this way? Its like the game clock goes bonkers, speeds up and wont let the changes from day to night and weather happen gradually or something.

Do I have a corrupt game or are others experiencing this?

It's just the game dude, despite how beautiful the weather mechanics are and all.. they really messed up with the cycle. For example, from 12am to like 2am ingame it takes almost 2 minutes. That's why most of the time you'll see it stop raining in seconds or clouds evaporating in the blink of an eye. Hopefully it's something theyll look into.

I am early in my first play and i know your frustration.
Fast clock, fast weather changes, and sometimes too heavy god rays.
So many weather/atmosphere effect intended to add realism, but just
only end up degrading the graphics and reducing game play enjoyment.

Saint-Denis is the worst for the effects of fast clock and fast weather changes.
For me i would be happy with an always clear weather option in the settings.
The option to disable or reduce god rays would also be nice to have.
A slower clock needs to be added as soon as the next patch.

Fallout 4 is a good example of graphic improvement with clear weather and no god rays enabled.
Those changes provide better color, better contrast, less haze, and removal of the blur that is supposed to be fog.
Better graphics = more fun playing Fallout 4.
Those changes in Fallout 4 came from mods, but could be added to settings via patch.
