Strange weather symbols
« on: November 02, 2014, 12:50:40 pm »
Hello! http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/Albatross/vol011of055/vol011of055_069_0.jpg
9pm, what's the last weather symbol used? Looks like a "ocp+" or "ocp[arrow up]"  :-\

Hello and welcome back to the forum!
I think it is r.



http://forum.oldweather.org/index.php?topic=161.msg1071#msg1071 shows:
p - Shower (a relatively short period of precipitation; the type is indicated by additional letters or symbols)
r - Rain (drops of water >0.5mm diameter)

The corresponding events page (http://oldweather.s3.amazonaws.com/ow3/final/Albatross/vol011of055/vol011of055_069_1.jpg) notes passing rain for 8PM to midnight.
