REMARKS SECTION
Remarks will be included in all METAR/SPECI reports if deemed appropriate. They will be
separated from the body of the report by a space and the abbreviation RMK. If there are no
remarks, then "RMK" is omitted (Figure 1-16). The remarks fall into three major categories:
1.
Manual and Automated remarks,
2.
Plain language remarks, and
3.
Additive data and Maintenance remarks. Only the first two will be discussed in this chapter,
as the last is of very little importance to an aviator.

Remarks are made in accordance with the following conventions.
1.  Where plain language is called for, authorized abbreviations and symbols are used to
conserve time and space.
2.
Time entries will be in minutes past the hour if occurrence is during the same hour the
observation is taken. If not, then hours and minutes will be used.
3.
Present weather in the body of the report using VC (vicinity) may be further described, if
known. DSNT (distant) indicates weather that is beyond 10 miles of the point of observation, and
it will be followed by the direction.
4.  Movement of clouds and weather indicates the direction toward which it is moving
(remember wind is always from).
5.
Directions use the eight points of the compass.
