I noticed that the entry for De Bilt, Netherlands at the weather.gladstonefamily.net site had recent weather data. I asked Philip Gladstone where he gets that data and searched around a bit myself. The answer is that this is synop (surface synoptic observations) data. The synop data format is ofcourse very different from the METAR format. Time to find good data sources, write another parser and see what this can do for http://weather.idefix.net/. Probably time to split the whole script that generates the weathermaps in several parts, fetching, parsing and caching data, drawing the resulting data on the map.
