What is the difference between "isolated thunderstorm" and "scattered thunderstorm"? Both terms are used in AOL weather.
From the National Weather Service :
The National Weather Service expresses the probability of measurable precipitation (0.01 inch) for a given location using percentages and terms such as isolated and scattered. Isolated means a chance of precipitation of less than 30% and scattered is used for a 30% to 50% chance. Likely describes a probability of 60 percent or greater.
