Okie, so now I am confused. This is coming off of the latest METAR from MGW.

RMK AO2 RAB21 SLP205 RDGS E OBSCD P0000 T00280011
I got some of it... but would someone mind translating it for me? Thanks.

RMK- Remarks

A02- Station has a precip. discriminator. (can tell between rain and snow)

RAB21- Rain began at :21 after the hour.

SLP205- Sea Level Pressure is 1020.5 mb

RDGS E OBSCD- I've never seen it before, but I'm guessing it means readings (ridges?) to the east are obscured.

P0000- No measurable precip. in the past hour.

T00280011- Temp. is 2.8 deg. C, Dew Point is 1.1 deg. C.

A02 means the reporting station can detect the type of precipitation

RAB21 rain began at 21 past the hour

SLP sea level pressure 1020.5 millibars (i think, could be wrong)

Ridges East obscured (?)

T00280011 this gives the exact temperature

Thanks. I'm assuming RDGS is ridges... maybe. Not much in the way of mountains around here. Thanks again.
