Tuesday’s Ask Storm Team 11 question is “What is the difference between a tornado watch and a tornado warning?”
A tornado watch usually covers a large geographical area and means conditions are favorable for tornadoes. The ingredients in the atmosphere are there to produce tornadic thunderstorms. You should stay alert.
A tornado warning is more urgent and means a tornado has been detected on radar and/or reported by a spotter. You should seek shelter right away in the lowest level of your home and away from windows.
