I've been racking my brain for days trying to figure out what that square with the 3 horizontal lines represents. All the other icons are self explanatory. Anyone put me out of my misery?

Really?

I never would have guessed it!

Just scroll down to 'Weather types' and it tells you.

I suppose it is like the demister element on the rear window?

I thought I had scrolled, guess I missed it!

The five weather types are not in the same order as the icons in the grid.

No, but with respect a five year old could work it out by a process of elimination.

Well I'm not a 5 year old and I bleeding didn't. Thanks for sharing that.

Perhaps an 'eye' with an 'X' superimposed, would have been a more intuitive bad visibility / fog warning.
