Severe Weather Prediction: Week of April 28

North Carolina is known for unpredictable weather. Already this year, we’ve experienced multiple severe weather events and tornado touchdowns. Once again this week, forecasters are predicting severe thunderstorms with damaging winds, large hail, flooding and tornadoes. In fact, the National Weather Service has issued a Tornado Watch for Wake County and much of the surrounding area for Tuesday, April 29, until 9 pm.
