Our next chance of rain and thunderstorms arrives on Monday and Tuesday, but first, here’s your Texas Thunder Radio Weekend Weather Update.

No Comments

Mostly clear skies this evening with moisture and clouds increasing late tonight. Overnight lows will be in the mid 50s across the Hill Country and upper 50s across the rest of the area. Pleasant temperatures and dry weather can be expected through the upcoming weekend across south central Texas. More clouds will build in by Sunday. The next chance of rain and thunderstorms arrives on Monday and Tuesday as an upper level storm system and cold front move across Texas. Periods of heavy rainfall leading to localized flash flooding could be possible Monday night into early Tuesday morning.

A pattern change is afoot early next week as a front stalls over the region. With moist Gulf air in place and a weak disturbance passing across central and north Texas, a heavy rainfall risk will develop Monday afternoon and end Tuesday morning. Monday night looks to have the best heavy rainfall signal at this time. 1-3 inches with locally higher amounts will be possible over the Hill Country and portions of the I-35 corridor.

And now, your TTR Weekend Weather Forecast –

Tonight: Mostly clear. Lows in the upper 50s. Southeast winds 5 to 10 mph.

Saturday: Partly cloudy. Highs in the lower 80s. South winds 10 to 20 mph.

Saturday Night: Partly cloudy. Lows in the lower 60s. South winds 10 to 15 mph.

Sunday: Mostly cloudy in the morning then becoming partly cloudy. Highs in the lower 80s. South winds 10 to 20 mph.

Sunday Night: Mostly cloudy. Lows in the upper 60s. Southeast winds 10 to 15 mph.

Here’s what’s coming up on this weeks, Lone Star Outdoors Radio Show!

We start off by chasing Eastern Greater Kudu with longtime PH Ross ‘Stix’ Hoole of John X Safaris. Perhaps the most sought after trophy of all of Africa’s spiral horns, the Kudu is as majestic as they come. Stix talks about the terrain we will hunt this animal in, plus he gives us his thoughts on caliber and bullet selection for hunting some of Africa’s medium big game. (Keep in mind at 660 lbs a Kudu is a medium sized African animal)


Next, we’re joined by longtime vintage weapon dealer Ed Raye. We discuss the FP Liberator .45 Single Shot pistol that General Motors manufactured for the U.S. Army in 1942. It was designed to be dropped behind occupied Europe but the plan never really came to fruition.


Then, it’s the P’s and Q’s of 1’s and 2’s on the water with our old friend and 2014 Bassmaster Elite Series Angler of the Year Greg Hackney. We caught up with Greg a couple weeks ago at the Bassmaster Classic on Lake Conroe, TX and he gave us the do’s and don’ts of bathroom protocol while out fishing a tournament. We appreciate him being a good sport!


We wrap up the show with 6 Spring Turkey Tips that I have learned over the years. Trial and error, success and failure- that is the only way to learn and I will share some of each with you during this segment in hopes that one piece of it sticks with you long enough to put your tag on a big ‘ol tom this spring!

Join us Saturday Morning at 8 am, on Texas Thunder Radio!
