WMO Abbreviated Headings

This crate has parsers for the data designators in WMO Abbreviated Headings, specifcally for Attachment II-5 in WMO manual 386.

These abbreviated headings are often referenced by their fields TTAAii, and can be seen in NWS bulletings and EMWIN filenames. For example, consider the first two lines of an NWS forecast:

FPUS51 KBOX 211708

The FPUS51 part is the WMO abbreviated heading and can be decoded using tables A through D of WMO manual 386. In this particular example, the F indicates a Forecast, the P indicates a public forecast, the US part indicates "United States", and the 51 part is an NWS specific code that indicates it was issues from the Northeast US.
