To anybody reading this who had the WeatherSTAR XL from 1999-2004, do you remember ever seeing Haze on the XL CC screen showing the Sunny/Clear icon? There are a few instances of this on famartin1's videos from July 1999, but I don't recall ever seeing that on an XL before (in person or online), I was wondering if this could be narrated as "Under fair skies with haze.", or if this just says "Under hazy skies.". I have, however, seen at least one 4000 video with Hazy on the CC screen showing the Sunny icon, although the LDL shows Fair. I was also wondering if this was later changed to just show as Fair, or if Fair with Haze was such a rare report (I'm assuming that's the observation as the Trenton station was not human operated).

I was mostly talking about the "Sunny/Clear" icon, but yeah, "Haze" could use the "Cloudy", "Mostly Cloudy", or the "Partly Cloudy" icon, depending on the sky condition, but it seemed that if it was "Fair with Haze", this was just shown as "Fair", until I saw those clips, since I had never seen "Haze" on an XL use the "Sunny/Clear" or the "Fair" icon before that. If I had seen that years ago, it would stand out in my mind, so they may have just shown that as "Fair" later on.
