Understanding thunderstorms and weather terminology

With hurricane season approaching, KPRC 2 Hurricane Headquarters is here to help Houstonians power through the storms by providing our audience with everything they need to know, starting with terminology.

Here’s what to know about thunderstorms:

Severe Thunderstorm Watch: An announcement issued when severe thunderstorms are possible in and near the watch area. It does not mean that they will occur. It only means they are possible.

Severe Thunderstorm Warning: A warning issued when severe thunderstorms are occurring or imminent in the warning area.
