    Yes, I'm more familiar with metric units but I'm aware that for
    certain applications, like aviation, the English units are kept being
    used. I don't know why in aviation they can't use 300m instead of
    100ft. May be one fears that a change to metric would create a too
    high risk.
    So, if English units are the "decent" ones for you, why then you don't
    click on the link "Page Preferences" at the top of wunderground's page
    and adjust the units to be shown to those? Since the METAR are in
    English units you would see the original data without conversion.
    BTW, regarding English units: I noticed recently that the department
    stores here in Istanbul indicate the power of air conditioners in BTU.
    I guess that only a very, very small part of the population in this
    country knows what this stands for.
