automatic station plotting - weather symbol

Post by Francis Richards »

Thanks for sorting out my last list of things - it's plotting all the stations now on recompiling.
Following on from one of the queries earlier about not plotting certain automatic station weather symbol correctly - I downloaded 2004071109 SYNOP file from COD. If you look at stations 03827, 03862, 03882, 03628 - it plots it as recent rain and snow (in July!!) but it should be plotted as recent rain. Take 03882 - ix is coded as using code table 4680 - code 23 - recent rain. You mentioned it should be plotting the new automatic weather reporting symbols already.
Thanks in advance.

Yes, you are correct, there is a problem with Digital Atmosphere not resolving ww to wawa. I never thought that there would be such vast differences between the tables. I have added code to process the weather codes so they plot correctly.
