Additional Info:
The Short Term Forecast is an "event driven" product issued only when significant weather is occurring. It provides additional details not found in the Public Zone Forecasts like time of onset of precipitation, and where stronger thunderstorms may occur. The valid time of a Short Term Forecast is often less than two hours.
