This topic covers the meanings and differences between the 3 main National Weather Service (NWS) notifications of potential severe weather...Advisories, Watches, and Warnings. After watching this, you will understand what each means, how they rank in terms of the severity of weather they encompass, and how they differ from each-other. This way, when the NWS issues one of them, and Jeff talks about it on the air, you can more readily understand what each means to you, your family, your pets, and your property.
