Here’s what coming up this week on Lone Star Outdoors Show with Cable Smith

No Comments

We start off by checking in with our 2017 Photo of the Year Grand Prize Winner – Marc Vaden. He won our June photo contest and a fan vote saw him beat out the other 11 monthly winners for a chance to join me on a trophy axis deer hunt. We discuss the hunt in detail with Marc and Koons Canyon Ranch owner Glynn Underwood.

Marc with the biggest axis deer ever taken on the ranch!

I also got lucky on the hunt and took a buck of my own. Not quite the stud Marc shot but one that I am very pleased with!

 

We then spend a few segments with Sierra Club Rocky Mountain Chapter Wildlife Committee Chair – Delia Malone. The Sierra Club has been very public about their goal to reintroduce wolves into a state (Colorado) that boasts the greatest elk herd in North America. We debate the pros and cons as well as the science behind such a move in a civil manner. I believe we need to keep our friends close and enemies closer, and in this case, the Sierra Club is no friend of conservation in my estimation.

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

Happy Easter!

No Comments

…Strong to Severe Storms Possible along and east of I-35 through early this evening…
…Pockets of Locally Heavy Rainfall Possible through early this evening…

Area of Concern:
Through early this evening: areas along and east of Interstate 35

Threats & Impacts:


Winds: Isolated severe storms capable of producing straight-line winds up to 60 mph.
Hail: Isolated severe storms capable of producing quarter to golf ball sized hail.


Rainfall: Up to 1.5 inches expected along and east of the I-35 corridor, with isolated totals of 3 inches. Lesser amounts westward along the Rio Grande Plains.

Timing and Overview:

A cold front is pushing across the area and extends from the southern Edwards Plateau northeast into central Texas. The frontal boundary is forecast to push to the southeast throughout the day. This feature in addition to an upper level disturbance moving across the four corners region this morning and expected to push to the east-northeast this afternoon will aid for shower and thunderstorm development for much of today and especially along and east of Interstate 35. Heavy rain is expected ahead and along the frontal boundary as it pushes to the southeast. Also, there is a slight chance for strong to severe storms today along and east of Interstate 35. Main severe weather threats will be large hail and damaging winds. In addition, localized heavy rain could result in flash flooding. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect through 7 PM this evening. Shower and storm activity significantly diminishes this evening as the cold front moves into the coastal waters.

Confidence:

Severe Storms: Moderate

Rainfall Amounts: Moderate to High

Isolated Severe Storms and Heavy Rainfall Expected This Evening through Wednesday

No Comments

…Strong to Severe Storms Possible Tonight through Wednesday across much of South Central Texas…
…Pockets of Locally Heavy Rainfall Possible Tonight through Wednesday Morning…

Area of Concern:

This evening: Rio Grande Plains, Southern Edwards Plateau, Winter Garden regions.


Overnight tonight through Wednesday morning: Much of South Central Texas, especially I-35 corridor.

Threats & Impacts:

Winds: Isolated severe storms capable of producing straight-line winds up to 60 mph.
Hail: Isolated severe storms capable of producing quarter to golf ball sized hail.

Rainfall: 1-2 inches expected along and east of the I-35 corridor, with isolated totals up to 4 inches. Lesser amounts westward along the Rio Grande Plains.

Timing and Overview:

An upper level disturbance this evening and a cold front overnight into Wednesday will combine to produce showers and thunderstorms across much of South Central Texas. The best chances of storms in the evening will be across the Rio Grande Plains, southern Edwards Plateau, and Winter Garden region. The storms will expand in coverage overnight into the Hill Country, I-35 corridor, and east.

Overnight and into early Wednesday morning will see the heaviest rain and storms focused along the I-35 corridor. Showers and storms could decrease in coverage mid morning through early afternoon as conditions stabilize. Then an increase in showers and storms is possible again near and east of I-35 during the late afternoon and evening hours on Wednesday as the main cold front and upper disturbance moves through the region. Precipitation chances should end west to east late Wednesday night.

Some storms tonight through Wednesday evening could be strong to severe, with the main threats from these storms being large hail and damaging winds. A locally heavy rainfall threat is possible late tonight, especially along the I-35 corridor counties and eastward. Due to recent drought conditions the threat for widespread flash flooding should be limited. However, localized flooding is possible especially in urban areas should higher pockets of rainfall occur there.

Confidence:

Severe Storms: Moderate

Rainfall Amounts: Moderate to High
