At XA10 local time, during position relief briefing, I realized, once again, that navy pensacola tower was late forwarding their WX and ATIS code. This is a recurring, persistent problem with area military facilities. Without current WX and ATIS codes, we cannot forward accurate approach information to inbound flts, as required by FAA handbook 7110.65. When, after being called by our supervisor, navy pensacola tower forwarded their WX, there was no time associated with the WX sequence, and no new ATIS code (required with new WX sequence) offered. Neither local FAA management nor local navy officials seem to be effective in dealing with this dangerous problem.
