Well, we had our first tornado warning of the year. . . sirens blowing - the whole deal.
I must be confused but it has been pounded into us for years that if there is a chance of a tornado, the weather bureau issues a Tornado Watch.
If there is tornado sighted, then the bureau issues a Tornado Warning. Tonight they issued a warning because a weather spotter saw a tornado half way to the ground below a wall cloud. Then they announced later that it is not a tornado unless it's actually on the ground.
I wonder if anybody else is as confused as I seem to be.
