Storm Warning Vs. Storm Watch : What to know!
With spring bringing strong storms into our area it is best to be prepared. Do you know the difference between a watch and a warning? A severe thunderstorm watch means that the potential exists for the development of thunderstorms which may produce large hail or damaging winds. A watch is issued by the SPC (Storm Prediction Center). A severe thunderstorm warning means that a severe thunderstorm is occurring or is imminent based on Doppler radar information or a reliable spooter report. A warning is issued by the local National Weather Service office. You can always tune into your local news channel or always tune to 162.550 on your radio for the weather band here in Delaware. They will issue all Storm warning and watches for your area.
