MISSISSIPPI COUNTY, Arkansas — What's the difference between a watch and a warning?

A watch is issued several hours before severe weather strikes. It means ingredients are in place for dangerous weather to develop. In the case of a Tornado Watch, a tornado could develop soon. You should keep a close eye on the weather for the next few hours.

When a warning is issued, it means the severe weather is happening right now. If a Tornado Warning is issued, it means a tornado has either been spotted or is expected to develop based on weather radar. You should immediately take action and go to a safe place.
