Overwhelming, I would like to see these drones deployed en mass to the endless under served rural areas of America, and if they are doing WiFi, across the expansive cell phone dead space areas so I can at least have an internet connection on my phone while driving for hours across the half of Kansas that isn't populated and other similar areas. Entertain for a moment that Zuckerburg really does want to do this out of goodness of heart (unlikely, I know).

In weather jargon, "watch" means that the event has been actually been seen and reported somewhere. A "warning" means that conditions are right for an event to happen, but it hasn't yet been actually reported.
The irony is, you have it completely backwards. From AccuWeather (and any other source):
"Watches, like severe thunderstorm watches and tornado watches, which are two of the most common types, are issued when weather conditions are conducive for the event to occur,"
"Warnings are different. A warning is issued when the weather event is happening now," Pigott said. "In terms of flooding, for instance, a flood warning means a river has spilled over or flash flooding is occurring."
"Basically, a watch means atmospheric conditions are right for it to happen. Warnings mean it's actually happening," Pigott said.
