Weather Words

"Weather forecasts and warnings have to compress a lot of information into standardised, brief messages. Forecast and warning weather terms represent the more detailed definitions provided here. Forecasts and warnings have to accommodate variations across the time range, and often large areas, that they apply to. It is important to understand the use of duration and distribution terms, especially for elements like showers and thunderstorms, when considering the impact for a specific location or time."
