    south-southeast of Cuero TX
  • 21.5N 92.5W
  • Storm Intensity 35 mph
  • Movement Northwest or 310 degrees at 9 mph

SITUATION OVERVIEW

Harvey regenerates into a tropical depression across the Gulf of
Mexico waters. Harvey is expected to move to the northwest and approach
the Texas coast Friday. The tropical system will bring tropical storm
winds and heavy rain across South Central Texas beggining Friday and
continuing into the weekend. Flash flooding and river flooding is
possible, mainly across the Tropical Storm Watch area.

Storm Total rainfall amounts of 3 to 6 inches are expected east of
Interstate 35 with isolated 10 inches across counties in the Tropical
Storm Watch from Friday afternoon through Monday afternoon. It should
be stressed that there is the potential for much higher amounts across
South Central Texas as they will be highly dependent on the track and
intensity of Harvey.

There is a low risk of brief tornadoes east of Interstate 35 Friday
evening into the weekend associated with tropical rain bands.

POTENTIAL IMPACTS

  • FLOODING RAIN:
    Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible limited
    impacts across areas in the Tropical Storm Watch. Potential impacts
    include:
  • Localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
  • Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
    Small streams, creeks, canals, arroyos, and ditches may become
    swollen and overflow in spots.
  • Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
    vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
    occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
    areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
    near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief road and bridge
    closures.

Elsewhere across South Central Texas, little to no impact is
anticipated.

  • WIND:
    Prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
    the Tropical Storm Watch area. Potential impacts in this area include:
  • Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
    to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
    experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
    homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
    objects become dangerous projectiles.
  • Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
    numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
    fences and roadway signs blown over.
  • Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
    or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
    routes impassable.
  • Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
    in areas with above ground lines.
  • TORNADOES:
    There is a low risk for tornadoes late Friday east of Interstate 35.

  • PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

    • OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
      Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
      actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
      underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your Emergency
      Supplies Kit is stocked and ready.

    If you live in a place that is particularly vulnerable to high wind,
    such as a mobile home, an upper floor of a high rise building, or on
    a boat, plan to move to safe shelter. Take enough supplies for you
    and your family for several days.

    If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
    near the ocean or a large inland lake, in a low lying or poor
    drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
    river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

    Be a Good Samaritan and check on those who may not be fully aware of
    the situation or who are unable to make personal preparations.

    Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
    official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
    forecast.

    Jon Pardi is "Head over Boots" after Dierks Bentley delivers a gold-plated, hometown surprise

    No Comments

    By Music News Group

    Capitol NashvilleDierks Bentley helped Jon Pardi make quite a memory during the Sacramento stop on the What the Hell Tour this past weekend, delivering a gold plaque marking more than half-a-million in sales for the California Sunrise album.

    “That was definitely a surprise,” Jon says of the moment, “and for it to be acknowledged in front of a hometown crowd of 18,000 in Northern California, amongst my friends and family and early supporters, made it an emotional moment. I will never forget it.”

    California Sunrise debuted at #1 on the country chart the week it came out back in June of last year. So far, both of its singles — “Head over Boots” and “Dirt on My Boots” — have made it all the way to the top as well. Jon’s latest release, “Heartache on the Dance Floor,” is currently in the top ten.

    You can watch Dierks surprise the ACM New Male Vocalist of the Year in a new video posted on Jon’s YouTube channel.

    SITUATION OVERVIEW

    Hurricane hunter aircraft have found a closed circulation in what
    was the remnants of Harvey, and have found strong enough winds to
    categorize Harvey as a tropical depression. Harvey is expected to
    continue to strengthen as it approaches the Texas coast Thursday into
    Friday. Tropical storm force winds could approach coastal areas in the
    Coastal Bend as early as Thursday night or Friday morning.

    Heavy rainfall is expected through much of the area with rainfall
    totals of 6 to 12 inches possible along the middle Texas coast and
    Victoria Crossroads. Lesser amounts are expected further west. These
    numbers and locations are subject to change depending on the exact
    point of landfall along the Texas coast. Flash flooding is possible
    with these high rainfall totals. The heaviest rains will occur
    Thursday night through Saturday.

    Storm surge inundation of up to 4 to 6 feet is possible along the islands
    and into the bays. Isolated locations could see slightly higher inundation.

    Tornadoes are possible as rainbands move onshore Thursday night
    through Saturday.

    POTENTIAL IMPACTS

    • WIND:
      Prepare for dangerous wind having possible significant impacts across
      the Coastal Bend and middle Texas coast. Potential impacts in this area include:
    • Some damage to roofing and siding materials, along with damage
      to porches, awnings, carports, and sheds. A few buildings
      experiencing window, door, and garage door failures. Mobile
      homes damaged, especially if unanchored. Unsecured lightweight
      objects become dangerous projectiles.
    • Several large trees snapped or uprooted, but with greater
      numbers in places where trees are shallow rooted. Several
      fences and roadway signs blown over.
    • Some roads impassable from large debris, and more within urban
      or heavily wooded places. A few bridges, causeways, and access
      routes impassable.
    • Scattered power and communications outages, but more prevalent
      in areas with above ground lines.
  • FLOODING RAIN:
    Prepare for locally hazardous rainfall flooding having possible
    impacts across SOUTH TEXAS. Potential impacts include:

  • Localized rainfall flooding may prompt a few evacuations.
  • Rivers and tributaries may quickly rise with swifter currents.
    Small streams, creeks, canals, and ditches may become swollen
    and overflow in spots.
  • Flood waters can enter a few structures, especially in usually
    vulnerable spots. A few places where rapid ponding of water
    occurs at underpasses, low-lying spots, and poor drainage
    areas. Several storm drains and retention ponds become
    near-full and begin to overflow. Some brief road and bridge
    closures.

  • SURGE:
    Prepare for life-threatening surge having possible significant
    impacts across the middle Texas coast including the barrier islands.
    Potential impacts in this area include:

  • Areas of inundation with storm surge flooding accentuated by
    waves. Damage to several buildings, mainly near the coast.
  • Sections of near-shore escape routes and secondary roads become
    weakened or washed out, especially in usually vulnerable low
    spots.
  • Major beach erosion with heavy surf breaching dunes. Strong and
    numerous rip currents.
  • Moderate damage to marinas, docks, boardwalks, and piers.
    Several small craft broken away from moorings, especially in
    unprotected anchorages.

  • TORNADOES:
    Little to no impacts are anticipated at this time across South Texas.
    Tornado threats are expected to increase Thursday night through Saturday.

  • PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS

    • EVACUATIONS:
      If you are exceptionally vulnerable to wind or water hazards from
      tropical systems, consider voluntary evacuation. Relocate to a
      predetermined shelter or safe destination. If evacuating away from
      the area or relocating to a nearby shelter, leave early before
      weather conditions become hazardous.

    • OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
      Now is the time to check your emergency plan and take necessary
      actions to secure your home or business. Deliberate efforts should be
      underway to protect life and property. Ensure that your Emergency
      Supplies Kit is stocked and ready.

    If you live in a place particularly vulnerable to flooding, such as
    near the ocean or a large inland lake, in a low lying or poor
    drainage area, in a valley or canyon, or near an already swollen
    river, plan to move to safe shelter on higher ground

    Always heed the advice of local officials and comply with any orders
    that are issued. Do not needlessly jeopardize your life or the lives
    of others.

    Closely monitor NOAA Weather Radio or other local news outlets for
    official storm information. Listen for possible changes to the
    forecast.
