Board update
Effective April 12, 2021, we had to delete about 8000 frivolous spammer accounts going back over a year. There was no way for us to locate all legitimate user applications, so some may have been deleted. If you are an actual user who created an account since March 2020 but did not get approved, please register again. You can also contact us via the Contact link on the main Weather Graphics webpage to get assistance. When you contact us, it is essential you provide brief but detailed info on your meteorological background or inform us of any previous order you've made, this way we can tell you are a legit user, otherwise we will assume it is a spammer trying to bypass the application checks. Thanks. -Tim

Station Model "C" code

Post by »

I enjoy reviewing the surface maps generated by Weather Graphics on a daily basis. One part of the station model that I don't understand is the "C" code (e.g., C28, C8) that often appears on the lower right side of a station (below the pressure trend). This does not conform to standard weather models I have worked with. What does the "C" code represent?

It stands for ceiling height in hundreds of feet AGL so C8 = ceiling height 800 ft AGL.
