It means you should monitor weather forecasts and prepare to take action. What's important about this tornado watch is that there is a HIGH LIKELIHOOD of tornadoes. The Storm Prediction Center (which helps issue these watches) says a few tornadoes are likely with a couple of intense tornadoes possible. Scattered large hail up to 3.5 inches thick and wind gusts up to 80 mph will be possible. The thunderstorms will be most numerous between 2 p.m. and 9 p.m. local time Sunday.

Keep an eye on the western and northwestern sky for incoming, hazardous weather. Have a way of receiving weather warnings. Have a backup plan in case you are outside. Always be weather ready!
