A Tornado watch is issued when conditions in an area are favorable for the development of tornadoes. Hail up to the size of ping pong balls are possible as well. Due to the volatile nature of the atmospheric conditions, strong tornadoes of EF-2 magnitude or greater are possible (winds of at least of 111 mph).
