It's basically saying the wind is starting to kick up in Charley. The top "chunk" of numbers are measurements of wind speed and temperature that the plane crew made on the way into the storm; the bottom "chunk" of numbers are measurements made on the way out.
Without decoding it entirely, each line is basically latitude, then longitude, then wind "height", then temperature/dewpoint, and lastly wind direction & speed. So the first line showed 02013 for the wind number, meaning 020 wind (coming from nearly north) with 13kt winds.
The ugly part is the line that begins MF. (Interesting choice of letters ). It shows maximum winds. On the outbound leg, they found 98kt winds...NOT cool....especially as far south as it is right now, got plenty of time to build...
