The other "s" is for wind speed in the usless positionless
weather report format used by WinAPRS which was always an
anathma to APRS.  It makes no sense to have a weather report
without konwing where the report IS...

So there is no conflict.  If one wants to transmt a snow report,
then don't use WinAPRS format and use the "complete" format
instead.
