An explanation of the weather icons, what they represent for each forecast period are shown in the table below.
The WxGlance Forecast Table will show precipitation when the chances are 25% or greater. When precipitation chances are less than 25%, then the prevailing sky cover will be shown for the period.
The prioritization order that the icons are displayed in the forecast table represents the order that they are listed in the table below. For example, if thunderstorms are forecast and a chance of precipitation is 25% and greater, then the “Thunderstorm and Thunder shower” Icon will be displayed vs the “Sky condition” icon (i.e Partly Sunny). However, if the chance of Thunderstorms is 24% and less, then the “Sky Condition” icon will be displayed.
The “Precipitation %” or Chance of Precipitation in the forecast table as well as the “Precipitation Amount(in)” will be displayed in Green. A snow column will display in Purple when snow is forecast. An Ice column will display in Magenta when Ice accumulations are forecast. Finally, the icons do not represent all of types weather that you may experience in a given period, but represent the type of weather that will cause a the greatest impact based on the prioritization in the table below. So thunderstorms are considered the “most impacting,” freezing rain the second most impacting, a mix of freezing rain and snow is the 3rd most impacting, etc.
