Hi!

I noticed on the Bimingham TAF the other day that it ended with

VV ///

I have never seen this before and I found the "///" on the TAF decode to mean "sky obscured" but I am stumped by the "VV" part!

Anybody know?

VV is Vertical Visibility. Used, I believe, when the cloud base is not discernable.

Figures in lieu of '///' give vertical visibility in hundreds of feet. As you say, /// means sky obscured.
