Storm Watch and Storm Warning Have Different Meanings

9/9/2020 (Permalink)

When you hear that a storm watch or storm warning is in effect, do you know the difference?

 A storm watch means that upcoming potentially dangerous weather conditions are expected to occur. These conditions such as heavy rains, strong winds or hailstorms can occur based on the weather pattern that is currently being forecast.

A storm warning means that potentially danger weather is either in or near your location and that severe conditions have already been observed.

In addition to the meaning of the watch or warning, the difference also applies to the time involved to take action and get to safety.  A storm watch lets you know that it may take several hours to reach you and a storm warning lets you know to take immediate action to find safety.

Either a storm watch or storm warning can result in storm damage to your home or business.
