Summer Storms: Watch, Warning and Advisory Criteria
The National Weather Service uses a WATCH and WARNING program to alert the public to potentially threatening weather. In the summertime, watches and warnings are issued for severe thunderstorms, tornadoes, and flash floods, and special marine warnings are issued for gusty winds in marine areas.
Basic Definitions of Events
One of the best ways to monitor these conditions is by purchasing an alert-activated NOAA Weather Radio for your home or business.
