  • A watch means that the conditions are right for a tornado and a warning means that they have spotted them.

  • Diva is right! Where are you from? I'm from Michigan and the watches/warnings are fairly common, but not as common as in the southern states.

  • One means continue with what you're doing we'll let you know if one is sited. The other (WARNING) means Hit the floor Mabel, one's a comin'!

  • A watch means that mother nature is in the right mood and warning means you better run cause it's comin'.

  • If you can see it, that's a warning! If there aren't even any storms yet, that's a watch.
