        A lot know the difference, but some folks still don't distinguish between a watch and warning
        When severe weather threatens a watch usually precedes a warning. Watches and warnings we see most often in the Valley are for flash flooding, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes.
        A watch means there's a chance severe weather may occur in the area. Basically, it means "watch out," hazardous weather is a possibility.
        If a watch is issued, be ready to use your safety plan if a storm is heading your way.
        A warning means a severe weather event is occurring, is about to happen or is likely.
        That safety plan we hope you have for these times may be needed with a warning. It can saves lives, reduce the threat of injury and spare you property damage.
