T 17 16 17 19 Q1002 1003 1004 1005
a. 1400UTC to 0200UTC
b. 1400UTC to 1500UTC
c. 1400UTC to 2200UTC
d. 1400UTC to 0200UTC except for the inter period
Correc answer is C.
Shouldn't the right answer be A or when there is FM, the rain showers are forecast from 1400UTC to 2200UTC
Please clarify the answer.
Looks like the correct answer is C.
SH/RA forecast from 1400 until the start of the FM period of 2200.
At a glance, the first line (1402 18020KT 9999 SH/RA SCT030) can easily trick you into picking A due to the FM being on a separate line.
I came across these symbols in the bob tait book while I was studying for MET exam a while back and I cannot recall what are their meanings.
// /// //// If i remember correctly //// due to inadequate information from the sensors or some sort, the cloud base or amount is unknown.
