A watch is issued by the National Weather Service when conditions are favorable for the development of tornadoes in and close to the watch area. The watch is in a form of a rectangle whose size and orientation varies depending on the weather situation. They are usually issued for a duration of 4 to 8 hours. They normally are issued well in advance of the actual occurrence of severe weather. During the watch, people should review tornado safety rules and be prepared to move a place of safety if threatening weather approaches.
