What exactly is the difference between a watch and a warning?

A watch is issued when conditions are favorable for impactful weather conditions to occur. This is more like a notice and a heads-up. A warning is issued for when impactful weather is happening or about to occur and this means you should prepare and take action.

As mentioned before, there is a Flood Watch for Hampden, Hampshire, and Franklin Counties which means conditions are favorable for flooding to occur with the already high-running rivers, creeks, and streams and there still is some snow on the ground in spots that will melt into running water.

The High Wind Warning for Berkshire County means an impactful wind event is likely and you should prepare.
