Using the original rule for weather (only in target zone and landing) does the weather get rolled for when the bomber turns around or remains in the zone (due to drag) or is it rolled only once for the zone when it is entered?

Using the rules for weather in each zone the same question applies. If for any reason the bomber is delayed should you check the weather each time a turn starts or only each time a zone is entered?

example #1 (base rules):
+=============================================================+
! Mission Log #08: !
+=============================================================+
! Target : Rotterdam (Zone: 4) !
! Resources : Ship Yard !
! Flak : Normal !
+=============================================================+
+.............................................................+
! 8th Air Force Base >>> Zone 02 !
! Zone 02 >>> Zone 03 !
! Zone 03 >>> Zone 04 Weather : Good !
! Zone 04 [inbound] >>> Zone 04 [outbound] Weather : ^^^^ ! * Use previous zone value
! Zone 04 >>> Zone 03 !
! Zone 03 >>> Zone 02 !
! Zone 02 >>> 8th Air Force Base Weather : Good !
+-------------------------------------------------------------+

example #2 (base rules, each zone of interest):
+=============================================================+
! Mission Log #08: !
+=============================================================+
! Target : Rotterdam (Zone: 4) !
! Resources : Ship Yard !
! Flak : Normal !
+=============================================================+
+.............................................................+
! 8th Air Force Base >>> Zone 02 !
! Zone 02 >>> Zone 03 !
! Zone 03 >>> Zone 04 Weather : Good !
! Zone 04 [inbound] >>> Zone 04 [outbound] Weather : Bad !
! Zone 04 >>> Zone 03 !
! Zone 03 >>> Zone 02 !
! Zone 02 >>> 8th Air Force Base Weather : Good !
+-------------------------------------------------------------+

example #3 (Alternate rules, every zone):
+=============================================================+
! Mission Log #08: !
+=============================================================+
! Target : Rotterdam (Zone: 4) !
! Resources : Ship Yard !
! Flak : Normal !
+=============================================================+
+.............................................................+
! 8th Air Force Base >>> Zone 02 Weather : Good !
! Zone 02 >>> Zone 03 Weather : Poor !
! Zone 03 >>> Zone 04 Weather : Good !
! Zone 04 [inbound] >>> Zone 04 [outbound] Weather : ^^^^ ! * Use previous zone value
! Zone 04 >>> Zone 03 Weather : Poor !
! Zone 03 >>> Zone 02 Weather : Bad !
! Zone 02 >>> 8th Air Force Base Weather : Good !
+-------------------------------------------------------------+

example #4 (Alternate rules, every zone):
+=============================================================+
! Mission Log #08: !
+=============================================================+
! Target : Rotterdam (Zone: 4) !
! Resources : Ship Yard !
! Flak : Normal !
+=============================================================+
+.............................................................+
! 8th Air Force Base >>> Zone 02 Weather : Good !
! Zone 02 >>> Zone 03 Weather : Poor !
! Zone 03 >>> Zone 04 Weather : Good !
! Zone 04 [inbound] >>> Zone 04 [outbound] Weather : Bad !
! Zone 04 >>> Zone 03 Weather : Poor !
! Zone 03 >>> Zone 02 Weather : Bad !
! Zone 02 >>> 8th Air Force Base Weather : Good !

weather only affects landings and bomb runs. you only roll once for target zone and once for landing.

For base game your first scenario is correct.
