Hazardous Weather Outlook

This is an actual weather report issued by the U.S. National Weather Service late yesterday. You can skip all the preliminaries and just look for the blue underlined part -- the only change I made to this official report.

And don't you just hate the "teletype look" of using ALL CAPS in Courier? C'mon, NWS! This is the twenty-first century!
