It's coded temperature and dewpoint. T means Temperature I assume. The first four digits are the temperature. In this example the temp is 30.6C. The last four numbers are dewpoint: 25.0C. If 1's were the first or fifth number that would mean a negative reading.

only a government body would see fit to duplicate a part of such a printout, the T/DP are already listed. But can they provide universal uncoded weather to people? Noo-oo. Even if we are now out of the teletype age where every digit is sacred.

No kidding. The main body is easy enough to figure out, but they sure get creative in the remarks.
