|Present Weather symbols
Plots of station data may include one of
the following symbols to represent the present weather. METARs may
include more than one type of weather condition but only one icon ever
gets plotted. Two additional documents show the original descriptions

symbol is plotted for each present weather text string. These are not
necessarily official but they represent our best matching of weather
conditions to the original WMO table of icons.
