The technology in the Super Doppler 10 Weather Center is astonishingly capable of keeping you fully informed during a hurricane. Super Doppler 10 Radar instantly "sees" rain, hurricane structure, rainfall amounts, tornadoes, and specific thunderstorm threats such as hail, lightning and sudden downburst winds within a hurricane. Our FutureTrak computer model provides a close-in, clearly understandable forecast that alerts you to any possible future threat. WeatherNet provides current local wind, temperature, and rainfall information to gauge a hurricane's effects as it moves through Hampton Roads. Behind the scenes, a constant flow of information keeps the Super Doppler 10 team of meteorologists informed as to the storm's strength, progress and threat. In addition to this technology, it is the education, knowledge and experience of our meteorologists...knowing the land, the waters, and most importantly, the people of Hampton Roads.
Hurricane Watch vs Warning - What's the difference?
HURRICANE WATCH: Hurricane conditions are possible in the specified area of the WATCH, usually within 36 hours. It's important to understand the terminology here. "Possible" means there is a chance of a hurricane…but it's too early to be completely sure. It's imperative to stay tuned to WAVY-TV 10 for the latest updates on the storm.
HURRICANE WARNING: Hurricane conditions are expected in the specified area of the WARNING, usually within 24 hours. A warning is the more serious of the two. Plan on a hurricane when you hear this! Though it is still possible that the hurricane may veer away from the area or weaken more than predicted, it is time to plan for the worst.
