Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 44 and it feels like 44. Highs will continue to range between 65 and 84 with lows between 44 and 64. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Sunday, a 60% chance of thunderstorms on Monday, a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Tuesday. Some storms could be strong to severe across North MS late today with main threats being for damaging winds and hail. An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out. Dr. Greg Forbes, the severe weather expert at The Weather Channel, is giving a TOR:CON (Tornado Condition Index) for Northwest MS for today. This means there is a 30% chance of seeing a tornado within a 50 mile radius. There is increasing potential for a significant, widespread, and multi-day severe weather/tornado outbreak beginning Saturday over Texas and pushing East into the Southeast by Monday into Tuesday. Too early to go into specific details yet, but all modes of severe weather are possible including tornadoes, large hail, and damaging winds. Heavy rain and flash flooding will also be possible. Potential for multiple rounds of severe weather exists late weekend into early next week. Winds Monday will be South-Southeast at 14mph with higher gusts. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 46 and it feels like 44. Todays high is 82 with a low of 57. Fridays high is 78.

Now, for your Severe Weather Update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around May 7th-9th.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Eastern Pacific, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Western Pacific, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the North Indian Ocean, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Southern Hemisphere (South-West Indian Ocean Region), all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Southern Hemisphere (Australian Region), a Tropical Low has winds of 30mph with a pressure of 1007mbars. In the Southern Hemisphere (South Pacific Region), no development is expected over the next couple of days.

Hope yall are having a great Thursday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning. God Bless!

Be careful down there Johnny. Looks like the South could have some severe weather for several days, not just May 7-9th.
