It has been a while since I grumbled about the weather, so here goes:

TAF CYOW 081738Z 0818/0918 31012G22KT P6SM OVC030 TEMPO 0818/0902 3SM -SHGSSNRA OVC020
BECMG 0821/0823 30008KT
FM090200 31008KT P6SM BKN030 OVC050
FM090600 31006KT P6SM SCT030 BKN050
RMK NXT FCST BY 082100Z=

-SHGSSNRA ??? Seriously? I had to go to the magic decoder to find out what that was:

LIGHT SNOW PELLET SHOWER
LIGHT SNOW SHOWER
LIGHT RAIN SHOWER

Geez… that’s piling a lot of crap into one element in a TAF. And we need exactly none of it.
