Nov 17, 2014 in "Severe Weather impacts to Walt Disney World"

A severe weather watch has been issued for much of Central Florida, including the theme park areas until 8pm this evening, November 17 2014.

A tornado watch, like a severe thunderstorm watch, means that conditions are favorable for severe thunderstorms to form, but it also means that a few storms may be capable of producing a tornado. A tornado warning is the ultimate in severe warnings, it means that a tornado is either occurring or imminent based on radar. You should take cover immediately.
