These 8 numbers/digits are in Standard eight figure group appended to routine motne/opmet (actuals)

In this example the crucial thing is as follows

//CLRD// (insert any digits in first and last two places) means that the previously broadcast contamination has ceasec to exist (eg snow, ice etc).

For full details Met section of Jepps page 71/2

Hope this helps

Regards

Danny for the digits either side of cleared:

86.....The first two digits are the runway designator. If there are parallel runways the left hand one gets the normal runway designation and the right parallel has 50 added to it. So 36L would get 36........ while 36R would get 86........ If 88 is used the information applies to all runways

......70 this is measure of the braking coefficient. Braking coefficients of .40 and above are good.
