NOTE: We've guessed that you're not using a client that supports colored tables and have tried to compensate. Low graphics mode looks much better on clients that do... we recommend switching to Netscape 3.0 or Microsoft Internet Explorer.
Coordinated Universal Time
converting between UTC and AM/PM time

Coordinated Universal Time (UTC) can be considered equivalent to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) (when fractions of a second are not important). UTC is the system used to indicate time in meteorology and is recommended for all general timekeeping applications. Time on most weather maps is given given in Coordinated Universal Time, (as in the example below).
