Watch vs. Warning

What is the difference between a severe weather watch and a warning?

A severe weather watch, or any other watch, indicates the atmospheric conditions are present for the severe weather to occur.  People in the area should be aware of the conditions, and plan accordingly.

A severe weather warning, or any other warning, indicates the the severe weather is occurring at the present time.  People in the area should immediately take shelter and listen for updates.
