Watch/Warning

Do you know the difference between a National Weather Service Watch and Warning? Check your knowledge below.

Watch

A 'Watch' is issued when there is the potential for significant and hazardous winter weather within 48 hours.  It does not mean that significant and hazardous conditions will occur... it only means it is possible.

Warning

A 'Warning' is issued when a significant weather event is occurring or imminent.  

See this National Weather Service link for more information.
