Hi, is somebody able to decode the remarks part?
CYQX 311900Z 23009KT 9999 FEW020 SCT038 BKN260 M07/M12 A2947 RMK SC2SC1CI1 SH W-N-E QUADS CU ASOCTD SLP988=

RMK SC2SC1CI1 SH W-N-E QUADS CU ASOCTD SLP988=
As far as I know it means this:
SC2SC1CI1 = 2 octas of Stratocumulus (the Few at 2000ft), 1 octa of Stratocumulus (the Scattered at 3800ft) and 1 octa of Cirrus (the Broken at 26000ft). OK, I realise that the octas don't correspond with the descriptors but it is Newfoundland after all!
SH W-N-E QUADS = Showers in the West, North and east quadrants with...
CU ASOCTD = Associated Cumulus.
SLP988 = Sea Level Pressure 998.8hPa (which is 29.47in Hg)
Hope this helps!
Thanks eckhard! You must be from St Pierre :ok:

No, and I'm not from Miquelon either!
My father was from Yorkshire, my mother from Hamburg; I was born in London and now live in France. So, if you tell a 'geographical' joke, there's a good chance I'll be offended at some level, but not in the case of a joke about the 'Newfies'!
