NWS Weather Alert Definitions

I can never get these sorted out. I'm posting them here so I can look them up when I get confused.

Watch: A Watch is issued when the risk of hazardous weather has increased, but its occurrence, location, and/or timing is still uncertain.

Warning: A Warning is issued when hazardous weather is imminent, occurring or has a high probability of occurrence.

Advisory: An Advisory is issued for conditions that are less serious than a warning, may cause significant inconvenience, but could also threaten life and/or property if caution is not exercised.
