    Tornado Warning

    The warning is, when you get a watch in your area, it means the conditions are right for tornadoes to form, this can be issued for several hours in advance of a storm, a warning indicates that it is doppler indicated or it was observed to be on the ground. This warning is issued until the tornado goes back inside the cloud.

    A tornado warning. I had tornado watches in the past and I didn't even get a single drop of rain. A tornado waring is serious business.

    a tornado warning. a tornado watch just means that tornados have the potential to develop. A tornado warning means that someone has seen one.
