I bet somewhere, someone has written a program or script to generate and kill weather related objects based on NOAA data.

Kenneth got me thinking.

I see some of the symbols are for weather-related conditions (rain, fog, mist, tornado, blowing snow, ...). I wonder if anyone actually uses them? By putting out objects?  If so, it must take a lot of attention to the current conditions and a lot of time spent on the radio (or computer). The adage here is if you don't like the weather, wait five minutes!

In the interest of making it easier to look up symbol codes, I've made a lookup table which has the symbol code, the primary symbol, and the secondary symbol all on top of each other as opposed to the three adjacent tables on the aprs.org page: http://blog.thelifeofkenneth.com/2017/01/aprs-symbol-look-up-table.html 


Thanks again to Hessu for curating the icon set used to generate this table.
