MINNESOTA SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS

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.
