METAR decode... quick help

Recommended Posts

Can someone help real quick - I can interpret the rest of the METAR report but what is the bolded information saying? I'm guessing the T01000083 is referencing a Thunderstorm, maybe?PANC 101453Z 00000KT 10SM -RA FEW025 BKN065 OVC100 10/08 A2970 RMK       AO2 SLP057 P0009 60018 T01000083 53002

Thnx!!

I suggest a website like this that can take the METAR report and break it down for you until you get use to reading it.  But you can look at the weather then look at the METAR and learn pretty fat what is what.

Hi Raven, I used that site and the NOAA site to figure the rest of the info out, but I guess because the remarks are random, i couldn't find any info on what the other info was saying.

Thanks all for the help - Kyle is there a place you found this info or is it just info that you know.  Just asking because as I am learning to decode METARS and TAFS (much harder) the remarks always pose the greatest challenge, i'd love any info reference on this that you know of.  The standard parts of the METAR are well covered and have lots of information available.

haha - it's just something I've picked up over the years of working with them.

 

As for a source for you to learn about it all: you really want to know?

 

Cue all of the "OMG WIKIPEDIA IS NOT A RELIABLE SOURCE BC I DONT KNOW THE FIRST THING ABOUT REVIEWING AN AUTHOR'S SOURCING" people.

 

 

 

Wikipedia for some of it.  The more obscure stuff can be found on Wunderground.
