alert light
Warning (Red Light)
A warning is issued when a hazardous weather or hydrologic
event is occurring, imminent or likely. A warning means
weather conditions pose a threat to life or property. People
in the path of the storm need to take protective action.
Watch (Orange Light)
A watch is used when the risk of a hazardous weather
or hydrologic event has increased significantly, but its
occurrence, location or timing is still uncertain. It is intended
to provide enough lead time so those who need to set their
plans in motion can do so. A watch means that hazardous
weather is possible. People should have a plan of action
in case a storm threatens and they should listen for later
information and possible warnings especially when planning
travel or outdoor activities.
Advisory (Green Light)
An advisory is issued when a hazardous weather or
hydrologic event is occurring, imminent or likely. Advisories
are for less serious conditions than warnings, that cause
significant inconvenience and if caution is not exercised,
could lead to situations that may threaten life or property.
