Each individual advisory area will be listed along the outer edge of the chart with its
corresponding valid time(s) and maximum tops expected. Areas forecast to have liquid or freezing
precipitation will include amounts expected. Additionally, MWAs use standard weather
abbreviations to describe coverage for a forecast area, as listed in Appendix C.
