patillac,

It means just as it says. No generation from midnight to 1AM. I usually look at the average daily outflow information located at the bottom of the page. The average for Saturday and Sunday are showing 300cfs. This average spans 24 hours. 300cfs is most likely base flow for the Holston so TVA will probably be pulsing. If the predicted average is a higher number, lets say, 1500, then TVA will be generating for a bit somewhere within that 24 hour span. Keep in mind that the weather can change these predicted flows but they're pretty accurate for the most part. The predicted flow for Monday will be posted tomorrow.
