Something that still surprises me to this day is how often people get watches and warnings confused!
This…IS NOT GOOD!
Tornado watches mean conditions are favorable for tornadoes to form in the next few hours. A warning is literally an alert telling you a tornado is ongoing or imminent. I explain this in a bit more detail in the video.
I also touch on how each specific category (watch and warning) actually have especially bad versions of each, which I think is an important nugget to remember when you are making severe weather safety plans.
As we move headfirst into April/May/June, which is the historic peak of tornado activity in the country — it is a good time to develop a severe weather action safety plan.
