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 forecast otherwise the prevailing sky cover will be shown for the period. If you will experience transitioning conditions in the period, then you may have two icons shown. The first icon shows the weather conditions expected initially. The second icon will represent how weather conditions will change. For example, you may have the mostly sunny icon initially to represent mostly sunny conditions in the morning. The second icon is a thunderstorm which highlights the chance of thunderstorms in the afternoon.
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 the types weather that you may experience in a given period
