"Warning" sounds a bit melodramatic... and for the record, a "hybrid" eclipse happens when it goes from annular to total. An annular eclipse is a
"ring" eclipse; the Moon is too far away to cover the entire solar disk. On rare occasions, such as this one, the Moon's distance is such that its
shadow grows during the course of the eclipse.
