This means that these areas are at risk for the *potential* of severe thunderstorms including hail larger than one inch in diameter, winds of 58 mph or stronger, and/or a tornado. If a warning is issued for your area, it means that a storm has formed and is about to move through (or very close to) your location! That means action must be taken immediately.
