The Top Image shows the Categorical Outlook, i.e. General Chance of Thunderstorms, Marginal Chance, Slight Chance, Enhanced Chance, Moderate Chance, and High Chance. See the Legend at the Bottom Right of the Top Image. The remaining 3 Images have Legends that show the Probability of the Type of Convective Weather shown on the image.

Forecast Header:


The Forecast Header valid period above, I’m not sure why the non-standard notation. Essentially, this report is valid from (Date and Time) to (Date and Time).



The above is the summary without jargon, look for “What, Where, and When!” Although this addresses the Marginal and Slight areas, it may fail to address other areas. So, the Summary may not Summarize very well. But those areas may be covered in other parts of the Forecast. 



Without further ado, is the part of the country not covered by the Summary, if Any. 



The person responsible for this report.



UTC and GMT are universal methods of keeping time. It is based on a reference point in England (Greenwich Mean Time), so it is 5 hours ahead of Eastern Time, 6 Hours ahead of Central Time, 7 Hours ahead of Mountain Time, and 8 Hours ahead of Pacific Time. Except during Daylight Savings Time. 

Daylight Savings affects the local time, UTC or GMT do not honor Daylight Savings. I’m in the Eastern Time Zone, UTC/GMT is 5 hours ahead, except we’re currently in Daylight Savings Time, so it’s only 4 hours ahead. For me, the next Day 1 (current day) outlook is (provide Standard Time and UTC Time).
