Meteorologists use the words "watch" and "warning" in their forecasts. Both words are used to inform viewers of possible dangers, but they do have different meanings.
A winter weather "watch" is usually issued about 12-36 hours ahead of the expected event. A winter weather watch means that it is likely that severe winter weather like sleet, freezing rain, or snow will occur.
A winter weather warning is much more severe compared to a winter weather watch. A warning means that winter weather is already occurring in the area and could be a threat to life or property.
