Once you know it, the SOP becomes routine.


        The Forecaster has discretion on issuing warnings and they do not always follow the literal rules except for T-1 condition (which is when you can actually see the thunderstorm coming within 10 miles of the field).

        T-2 may be issued for 24 hours though the rule is for 12 - 18 hours.
