DeGRIB Simple Weather Table v1

Simple Weather Table (v.1)

For convention sake, the fields of the weather string here are W=Weather type, C=Coverage type, I=Intensity, V=Visibility (not used), H=Hazard (not used). I use "C programming" convention to refer to which word. [0] refers to the 1st, [1] the 2nd, ... [4] the 5th.

To use this table, find the entry that it matches the most specifications of. In otherwords if it is W[0]=L, C[0]=SCT, use 1, but if C[0] is not in {SCT, SCHC, PATCHY, ISO, CHC}, use 9. If it matters, the precident is from left to right.

The "Simple Weather Code" is in the "Code" column.
