WxGlance Forecast Table Explanation

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.
