With the recent abnormalities observed in weather conditions all over the world, one has to make sure that no stone is left unturned in staying prepared with the repercussions that spawn due to violent and harsh weather conditions. The best weather app for iPhone and iPad provides its users with regular updates on the atmospheric conditions and the meteorological patterns. We started a series of articles last week which focuses on the different jargons and terminologies associated with the Severe Weather Alerts that Weather Mate furnishes. In the part II of this series, we’ll be looking into some more levels of hazards and risks that are displayed in the this exclusive feature of Weather Mate.
Such an instruction is generally issued by the meteorological department when the risk and potential of a certain weather event to cause devastation has increased considerably. However, for such a statement, the location, timing and occurrence of the weather event is yet to be determined. So, the actual purpose of the issuance of a Watch is to inform the people regarding an imminent hazardous weather condition so that they are able to get themselves prepared for any uncalled-for circumstances and abstain from planning outdoor activities.
This sort of statement is broadcast when a weather event with the potential to bring about large scale destruction is probable or is actually occurring. It means that the lives and properties of the population within the specified area are at risk and care should be taken at all costs to get out of the way of such a violent weather activity.
It is disseminated to further update the affected population about a previously issued watch, warning or emergency. It may augment certain instructions into the last warning or may abrogate it. It is also broadcast for a weather event for which no warning, watch or advisory exists.
We hope that these couple of articles on the levels of risks associated with the severe weather will help you keep yourself better prepared for any disastrous weather situation. Stay tuned for the next episodes of this series to get to know about more severe weather terminologies.
