Tropical storm Nate formed this morning near Nicaragua and is expected to track to the north-northwest and gradually intensify before clipping the Playa Del Carmen/Cozumel area of Mexico Friday morning. After it moves out into the Southern Gulf the environment becomes very favorable for intensification and should become a hurricane by Saturday morning. This NHC graphic shows the cone for the where the center of Nate should track (66% of the time) within the cone. Nate should make landfall Sunday morning.
The impacts from Nate will likely extend well outside of this track cone. 
For Southeast Texas
Impacts:
-Scattered showers and thunderstorms Saturday through Sunday
-Coastal counties and Coastal Waters
-Elevated minor tide levels for Brazoria, Galveston, and Chambers counties
-Strong rip currents
-Increasing seas and winds 15 to 25 knots Saturday afternoon.


A Coastal Flood Warning is in effect for Nueces and Kleberg
Counties through Friday afternoon.

A Coastal Flood Advisory is in effect for Aransas, Calhoun,
Refugio and San Patricio Counties through Friday afternoon.

There is a high risk of rip currents along gulf facing beaches
through Friday afternoon.

Minor to moderate Coastal flooding and a high risk for dangerous rip
currents may persist along portions of the coast into the
weekend.

The chance for thunderstorms increases Monday night and Tuesday
ahead of a cold front.


While forecast wetting rains will be on the decline today and
limited to slight chances along the Rio Grande, fire weather
concerns should remain minimal given the moisture content of area
fuels and forecast Min RH values well above critical values.
Additionally, wind fields will be light through the next several
days before a cold front is forecast to move through overnight
Monday night.

This week on Lone Star Outdoors Show with Cable Smith

No Comments

This week it’s all about our Nation’s greatest treasure- our public lands. You and I own it and there are factions out there that want to see it broken up and sold off to the private sector. So, we kick things off with my recap of an incredible New Mexico backcountry experience I had last week – on those very public lands I already mentioned. The weather turned nasty and we had to get off the mountain. A 5 day hunt ended up being a whirlwind 48 hour trip, and somehow I was lucky enough to take this mule deer as the fat lady was about to take the stage!
Then, we discuss the status of our public lands with Backcountry Hunters and Anglers CEO Land Tawney. How has President Trump appointed Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke done thus far at representing the interests of sportsmen and women concerning our public lands thus far? What about the leaked Monument Report that was accidentally released last week? Land gives us his thoughts on how Secretary Zinke ( a self described ‘Teddy Roosevelt Guy’) is doing so far.
We wrap up the show by visiting with Secretary Zinke himself! I ask him the tough questions regarding the National Monument Review and whether or not he plans to sell off any of our public land to the private sector.

Join us Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio.
