    We are closing in on billysinc and the big snow storm is about to hit tonight. Maybe we need to swing the deck web camera a bit to the right so we can see the precip can and make sure no one is adding to it.

    Adding to the can? I'm firing up a giant fan trying to blow this thing out to sea.

    That's just wrong to say BB. The F6 report is made up of statistical findings, nobody would touch the can, and with 100mph winds coming the can will only fill up to reach 12.2. Add that to the 33.6 and we have a potential winner

    I'm going now to play in the snow or shovel out the front of my house, we're getting pretty heavy snow. NEED GOGGLES!!!

    The current F6 report is at 42.4 so, unless some Christmas magic happens again there's no way I can win. If tomorrow's F6 report shows zero precipitation, then I will throw in the Snowwhite towel and cede to the winner.

    Can anyone tell me what column on the F6 report is column 16. % poss or skycover. I'm trying to understand the symbols used in column 16.

    Karen, I believe the answer is - for any given day there are a certain number of daylight minutes possible - from sunrise to sunset. Column 15 is the number of minutes of actual sunlight - not overcast. So, column 16 is the actual sunlight minutes (col 15) divided by the total possible daylight minutes for that specific day.

    Now, I am not sure how they define actual sunlight minutes. Is it based on visibility or cloud cover being less than a certain amount?

    Brad,
    If what you said is true, then I understand the F6 report even less now. How and where does "0" come from as it relates to the symbols used below (i.e. 70, 100 or 30)

    SYMBOLS USED IN COLUMN 16
    1 = FOG
    2 = FOG REDUCING VISIBILITY
    TO 1/4 MILE OR LESS
    3 = THUNDER
    4 = ICE PELLETS
    5 = HAIL
    6 = GLAZE OR RIME
    7 = BLOWING DUST OR SAND
    RED. VIS. TO 1/2 MILE OR LESS
    8 = SMOKE OR HAZE
    9 = BLOWING SNOW
    X = TORNADO

    Still wondering what the header for column 16 is actually labeled

    Nope - I confused you. I looked at the 16th column and not the 16th column of data. The first column is the day of the month.

    In any case the title of that column says it is the amount of sky covered in tenths. So, the numbers can go from 0 to 10. The note underneath that you pasted does not seem to go with that column at all.
