**998**: Pressure, to the nearest tenth of a millibar. Add either a 10 or 9 in front based on which would bring the value closer to 1000. The pressure

and in this case shows that there is a thunderstorm occuring at the station

**symbol next to -03**: That line is the pressure tendency. The 1st hour
the pressure was steady, then fell the last two hours.

**Triangle(with a dot above it)**: Previous weather, or the weather one
