Weather Warning Terms

The National Weather Service uses the words, "watch" and "warning" to alert you to potentially dangerous weather.


Watch - Be Alert!

A watch means weather conditions are favorable for dangerous weather to occur. In other words, a "watch" means watch out for what the weather could do, and be ready to act accordingly.


Warnings - Act Now!

A warning means the weather event is imminent or occurring somewhere in the defined warning area and that people need to take shelter as soon as possible.

MARY BLECKWEHL AUTHOR VISIT

Award winning author, Mary Bleckwehl, will be visiting McAuliffe on Monday, April 9th. If you would like to purchase a book for her to sign please watch for the order form coming home in Friday folders. Mary's visit is just one way our Box Top funds are used to enrich students.
