This episode is a special weather advisory episode we decided to put out early because of the pending landfall of Tropical Storm Cindy somewhere on the Texas coastline. National Hurricane Center is talking about heavy rainfall and flooding from Texas to Alabama over the next forty-eight hours through Friday 6/23/17.
Our disaster weather expert Kyle Nelson came on the show to discuss the forecast for Cindy and what is expected to happen this week. Check out Kyle on Twitter at https://Twitter.com/wxkylenelson/.

The public advisory in effect at the time we recorded this episode on Tuesday 6/20/17 was A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for eastern Texas from San Luis Pass to the Mouth of the Pearl River. A Tropical Storm Warning means that tropical storm conditions are expected somewhere within the warning area, in this case within the next 24 to 36 hours. Interests elsewhere along the U.S. Gulf Coast from the central Texas coast to the western Florida Panhandle should monitor the progress of this system.
