METAR string decoding

Recommended Posts

Hi all, please consider the following METAR string:
 
EDDS 171150Z 32010KT 290V350 9999 -SHSN FEW018 SCT041TCU M01/M05 Q1021 R25/29//94 NOSIG

 

Does anybody know what the highlighted part means? R25 would likely be runway 25, not sure about the rest though. Thanks!

I would love to see a full list of codes so that I know what they mean and don't have to rely on decoding (esp. in flight :smile:). EDIT: Thanks for the pdf, very useful!
