A watch means conditions are favorable for severe weather development

Know your County, nearby cities, and local landmarks whether at home or
on the Road. Listen to weather radio or local media for updated weather

indicated by Doppler weather radar. If a warning is issued for your

and local landmarks whether at home or on the Road.
