[LDM #LTH-228651]: METAR Stations in LDM Feed

Hi Arturo,

The regular expression you are using, '^SAUS.. (....) (..)(..)' is overly
restrictive; you will not process all METARs using this pattern.

No, there are lots more sites reporting METARs than this, and they are
definitely in the IDD IDS|DDPLUS datastream.

Change your pattern to:

WMO     ^S[AP].... (....) (..)(..)
