Default Weather Codes

I'm using the yahoo weather provider, and I want to rewrite all the descriptions to a max of 10 character spaces to fit my current theme. Problem I'm facing is the code being returned isn't matching up to the list found HERE.

When using #W1COND#
it returns "Scattered Thunderstorms"

but #W1CODE# returns "2"
which matches to the Hurricane code on that list from yahoo.

I do not want to use the truncate feature of rich text, because "Scattered T..." pales to "Sct TStorm" in my opinion.
