Hotel chain adapting weather forecasts to client expectations on language basis?

Hotel Medium Confort on Travesera de Gracia, Barcelona has a little display device on the reception counter which tells you in several languages where you are, the time, and tomorrow's weather. Last night the mixed Spanish/Catalan version was forecasting "soleado", while the English version had it at "cloudy". Predicted temperature and air pressure were identical.

I work in a hotel and have found signs up teling you about "weather for mourning" the pleasures of a "stoned foot bath" and on offer on the menu you can have "the Iberian secret well cocked with rice of foie"
