Local pilots have early access to local conditions, with an update in the morning.

XC pilots may want to access the Entire Area Day+1 information during the day, and again late in the evening after it is updated. A final check is available in the very early morning by checking the Current day Entire Area data.

You can see how far ahead each forecast has been prepared in the header (below, last part of middle line). nnhrFcst shows how many hours ahead the forecast was prepared (smaller is better). @xxxxz is the GMT time at which the forecast was prepared.
