I was playing several sorties of various campaigns I've got going and one thing I've noticed is the lack of variety - ie: similar time and weather. Does the campaign structure provide for night missions, good weather one day, bad weather the next, early morning, then mid-day, then night? Seems to me that there isn't much variety with the stock game "dynamic" campaign program.

Ok, so my next question is, do any of these other 3rd party campaign generator programs make up for this shortfall?

In the DCG that came with the game is not very good. However, as several people here have pointed out, Lowengrin's DCG is very good. You should also check out this thread in the Mission Builder's forum for a list of user-made campaigns:

User-made campaigns are static. That means your actions in one mission do not change how the next mission will be played. However, some of these campaigns are truly brilliant with their use of time and weather, the way the maps are populated with objects, unique missions and situations, and their off-beat story lines.
