Environment Canada monitors the weather 24 hours a day, every day of the year. If a severe storm is on the way, the weather service uses the local media and Environment Canada’s Weather Radio to alert the public. They have two basic types of alerts.
A Weather Watch is provided when conditions are favourable for a severe storm to develop. These are usually issued early in the day. It is a good idea to pay attention to the weather and listen to the radio or TV for updated information.
A Weather Warning means that severe weather is happening or that severe weather conditions are very likely.
