When flights get cancelled because of heavy winds / bad weather, why is it only e.g. 10% of all flights and not 100%? Isn’t either too dangerous so no plane can take off or it’s safe so they all can take off ?

Sometimes, it also depends on the destination. There might not be bad weather locally, but where the flights are going, so that might explain why 10% of them are cancelled, because say there’s a huge storm in Atlanta, so all the day’s flights to that region are cancelled.
