The National Weather Service encourages people to be weather aware throughout the year. Andy Bailey, the Warning Coordination Meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, joined us on KWIXLand this Morning to talk about Severe Weather Preparedness Week.
Bailey says there is a difference between a watch and a warning.
A warning means you need to act.
While May is traditionally the most active month for tornadoes, they have been recorded in every month of the year.
