— The National Weather Service is the official issuer of a watch or a warning, based on expected weather conditions.
Stormcenter7 Meteorologist Brett Collar explains the difference.
In severe weather season, knowing the difference between a watch and a warning can be life-saving.
A WATCH means you should prepare for the possibility of a severe storm or tornado.
A WARNING means you should take action now, get to a safe location because severe weather is occurring or a tornado has been seen or indicated by radar.
