Description: ------------ It seems that when a METAR contains a fractional visibility (e.g. "2 1/2SM") the script is only parsing the "1/2SM" and putting the "2" in "noparse". This is an example string that it has trouble with: KGYY 262350Z 02010G20KT 2 1/2SM -TSRA BR BKN006 OVC010 21/20 A2983 Output: ... [noparse] => 2 [visQualifier] => AT [visibility] => 0.5 ... Test script: --------------- I don't have a good test script for this. Expected result: ---------------- [visibility] => 2.5

I'll look into it. Something with the regexp seems to be wrong, because usually it should parse this kind of string...
