    PCP shield
    12z
    18z
    Pretty sure PCP shield is precipitation shield (how far out from the storm the precipitation extends)

    Z time is what is used for the runs of the models... http://www.theweatherprediction.com/habyhints/75/

    PCP = precipitation

    12z and 18z are simply times in UTC, which are either 4 or 5 hour subtractions for our time zone (it's 5 right now) depending on time of year due to spring-forward & fall-back.

    This was the explanation I was looking for. I figured PCP = Precipitation, just wasn't quite sure what a PCP shield is/was.

    What does the "z" stand for? Anything in particular interesting or just that 12z or 18z mean the time like you said?

    The military assigned a letter to every time zone... Z (aka Zulu) is +0 (aka GMT aka time at Zero meridian)

    Ah, makes sense I suppose. Thanks for the info gentlemen! I knew about the GMT time zones and different time zones, but didn't know about the military time zones.
