MONITORING SEVERE WEATHER

What is the difference between a Watch and a Warning?

Watch
A Watch (tornado, severe thunderstorm, etc.) means a particular hazard is possible and conditions are more favorable than usual for its occurrence. A watch is a recommendation for planning, preparation, increased awareness, and to be alert for changing weather, listen for further information, and think about what to do if the danger materializes.

Warning

A Warning (tornado, severe thunderstorm, etc.) means a particular weather hazard is either imminent or has been reported. A warning indicates the need to take action to protect life and property. The type of hazard is reflected in the type of warning (tornado warning, blizzard warning, thunderstorm warning, etc.).
