Show Dog NashvilleKnown for adding a bit of comedy to his music, superstar and Songwriter Hall of Fame Member Toby Keith is offering up a new single and video June 23rd called “Wacky Tobaccy.”

And, yes, the song is about the substance you think it is, based on the title.

“Wacky tobaccy is a slogan, a saying that’s been around forever and no one has ever put it in a song,” Toby said. “We recorded it and shot the video in Nashville. We got a cameo from Willie Nelson.”

The song’s chorus: “That old wacky tobaccy, when you feel it creeping up on you/That old wacky tobaccy, kick back and let it do what it do.”

Toby went on to say in the announcement that that the song “fits in with what we do every night with the party crowd.”

“Wacky Tobaccy” will be available at all major digital music retailers and services Friday.

Another hot day in store for South Central Texas today as highs will climb into the mid 90s to 104 range. Humidity values will create elevated heat index values near 108 degrees for some locations (mainly west).Skies should stay mostly clear with a sustained southeast wind of 10-20 mph. With yet another day of hot conditions, don’t forget to stay hydrated and protect your skin with plenty of sunscreen if outdoors!

Hot and dry conditions will persist through the weekend into early next week across all of south central Texas. Highs will reach the lower 90s in the Hill Country to 105 degrees along the Rio Grande. Overnight low temperatures will be in the 70s. Heat index values on Saturday will be in the 100-109 range.

With heat indices climbing into the triple digits this week, remember to stay safe when outdoors! Make sure you’re plenty hydrated, wear plenty of sunscreen, and wear light clothing.

How to Avoid Getting Caught in a Rip Current

  • Learn more about rip currents and beach safety developed by Texas A&M
  • Check water conditions before going in by looking at the local beach forecast before you leave for the beach and talking to the lifeguard at the beach.
  • Only swim at a beach with lifeguards. The chances of drowning at a beach with lifeguards are 1 in 18 million (U.S. Lifesaving Association).
  • Don’t assume! Great weather for the beach does not always mean it’s safe to swim or even play in the shallows. Rip currents often form on calm, sunny days.
  • Learn how to spot a rip current. The Break the Grip of the Rip free online training will help you learn how to spot a rip current.
  • What are scientists doing to keep swimmers safer? Find out in this video: Predict the Rip

Tropical Weather Update – Friday, June 16

No Comments

Not much change in the thinking from the National Hurricane Center with a medium (50%) chance of development in the NW Caribbean Sea, Yucatan Peninsula, or southern Gulf of Mexico over the next five days.

Items to Consider:

  • The system has yet to develop.
  • Any development should be slow to occur.
  • Confidence continues to slowly increase that if the disturbance develops, it will move into either the Bay of Campeche or the southern Gulf of Mexico.
  • Low certainty continues as to which direction the disturbance may move if it enters the Gulf.
  • Still too early to speculate what (if any) impacts may occur across the Gulf of Mexico or Texas.
