 Click
on the state you wish to forecast the hourly THUNDERSTORM CHANCES.

 At the
left is a column…10^{th} Line down is TP2 which stands for THUNDERSTORM
PROBABILITY.(CHANCES OF HAVING THUNDERSTORMS DURING THE 2 –HOUR
PERIOD ENDING AT THE INDICATED TIME). A complete time chart is available
to all for all time zones in the United States. Use it.
***This lists the forecast PROBABILITY OF
THUNDERSTORMS for each hour for the next 24 hours. Pretty simple.
This is how it is decoded: It lists the chance of
THUNDERSTORMS at that hour in percentages, the higher the number, better the
chance of having THUNDERSTORMS.
