English term or phrase: Fire Weather Watch
Hallo,

es handelt sich um US-Content, der auf elektronische Anzeigetafeln á la Hauptbahnhof kommt,
eine Vokabelliste, mit der der Content für die Reisenden bereitgestellt wird.

=> Wenn avalanche warning = Lawinenwarnung, was ist dann watch?
Handelt es sich hier um eine Art Waldbrandwarnstufe Gelb?

Anderes?

Wetterwache für Feuergefahr
Explanation:
"Watch" ist weniger dringend als "warning", d.h. etwas unter Beobachtung halten.
Wahrscheinlich bezieht es sich auf Waldbrände, dann eben "Waldbrandgefahr" oder "Waldbrandpotential"

Fire Weather Watch: Be Prepared. A Watch alerts land managers and the public that upcoming weather conditions could result in extensive wildland fire occurrence or extreme fire behavior. A watch means critical fire weather conditions are possible but not imminent or occurring.
