Okay - I can see that we have to work some with the weather-string...
Am I correct in thinking that this regexp should match all the
(ereg('^(-|\+|VC)?' . /* Intensity or proximity */
'(MI|PR|BC|DR|BL|SH|TS|FZ)?' . /* Descriptor */
'((DZ|RA|SN|SG|IC|PE|GR|GS|UP)+)?' . /* Precipitation */
'(BR|FG|FU|VA|DU|SA|HZ|PY)?' . /* Obscuration */
'(PO|SQ|FC|SS)?$', /* Other */
If so, then I think the general rule must be something like this:
$weather = "$description $intensity $precipitation";
like in 'Showers of heavy rain and snow'.
