Watch vs. Warning
Texas is known for the changing weather conditions. Severe weather like hurricanes, tornadoes, and lighting can hit at any instant. It is important to know the difference between a watch and a warning. Both can be issued by the National Weather Service. It can be released to a specific amount of time in certain areas.
A watch means the community should watch the sky because conditions make it possible for the development of severe weather. Keeping an eye on the weather and staying tuned to the local radio and televisions in case conditions worsen.
A warning indicates severe storms or tornadoes have been spotted or is indicated on a National Weather Service Radar. All of those within the designated areas should seek shelter and take cover immediately until the danger passes.
