Is there a technical weather-related definition of the word "glorious"?

I usually check the weather on this National Weather Service site
, which presents exactly as much information as I want in attractive all-caps ASCII. At the moment of this post, the weather for Friday is described as "SUNNY AND GLORIOUS" and Saturday as "SUNNY AND CONTINUED GLORIOUS." The repeated mention of "glorious" is encouraging but also a little less, uh, sober than usual. Does "glorious" actually have a technical definition? It doesn't seem like it's referring to the "glory"
phenomenon, which is more like a cool optical illusion than a general weather condition.
On a second note, what exactly is
that page? The ASCII and fixed line lengths make me think it's originally some kind of teletype holdover, but I'd love to know more.
