METAR 9999

Recommended Posts

I came across "9999" in a metar today. I tried to find it in the manual but no luck. I looked online and found the "9999" but no real explanations. The best I can determine is that it might have something to do with visibility being better then needed... like maxed out.

Can anyone confirm my thoughts? (or tell me I am wrong)

was the METAR from a military source? they use the ICAO standard. a few differences in formats. 9999 = visibility 10km or above.
