Look at weather.com or whatever you wanna use for weather. A big line of rain just went through.

I don't know if that is the cause, but I suspect it has something to do with it.

Weather would be my guess as well. While the rain may not be "unusual", the turbulence and LLWS that can come with it are, and force missed approaches..

Is there a website or anywhere I can learn how to read this, and what it means?

Sure...
Go to: http://adds.aviationweather.gov/metars/

Type-in the airports you want (US only)
METARS (hourly observations are selected as default, click the box for TAFs (forecasts if you want those as well)
Make sure you also change the "raw data" default to "translated", then click "Submit".

It works for international airports too - just use the ICAO codes.  Smile
