Tornado Watch vs Tornado Warning

Tornado Its important to understand the difference between a tornado watch and a warning

With spring storms in full effect I thought it would be a good idea to create a blog that dives down to the difference between a tornado watch vs a tornado warning. These terms get thrown around quite a bit during this time so I think its important to have an understanding on the difference.

The best example I've heard that shows how they differ is to think of it in cooking terms. Instead of using the term tornado we will use tacos. A taco warning means all the ingredients are there but there are no tacos yet. Meaning you have a shell, meat, and toppings all separate but they are available. 

A taco watch meaning all the ingredients are put together and the taco is here and ready to be eaten. This same comparison is true for a tornado warning.
