I have been "sorta" curious about the METAR coding used by the Observers for a long time. Some I've been able to figure out over time, but if I'm not paying strict attention, I lose the " language" and wind up scratching my head again.

I was going to ask here, but I asked Google instead, and Google helped me find this page:

Hope this helps others.
