I am curious to know which meteorological system is used for the weather tables?

I noticed that e.g. Cloud Density is set in the range 0-4 where Noaa (US) and Metoffice (UK) reports the cloud coverage in parts of eighths. 
Noaa also have a few more precipitation types (variants of drizzle, snow and ice).

Noaa - "Observing Handbook No.1 Merine Surface Weather Observations"
http://www.vos.noaa.gov/ObsHB-508/ObservingHandbook1_2010_508_compliant.pdf (page 2-50 and 2-56)

Meteorological Office - "Marine Observer's Handbook"
