In late May, 2009, WPC began offering its Day 1-3 QPF products in KeyHole Markup Language (KML)
format. Contained within the files are color-filled contours depicting either 6- or
24-hour QPFs. The contour intervals depicted are identical to those for the color-filled images
across the rest of our QPF pages.

The links on the previous page show the valid times of the most recently available 6- or 24-hour forecasts; in addition
there are links to complete Day 1, 2, or 3 forecast packages. These latter files contain
the 24-hour forecast as well as the four 6-hour periods that comprise the 24-hour forecast.
By default, the 24-hour forecast displays when opened, but any or all of the 6-hour periods can be
selected. If you select multiple 6-hour periods, a time line slider bar will appear at the
top of the display; with this feature, you can scroll or loop through the forecast periods.
