This is a good example of a bad choice of separators. Because
(weight>5.5) and destination are both conditions, but if I don't know

use a different character (like the ? in the 1.5) it would be clear
where the conditions start.

Didn't know about that too. And it has the same problem:

Where does the condition begin? Again this is not obvious. Small change:

Now it is clear.
