Good Morning! A Flash Flood Watch is in effect for North MS until 7pm Tuesday. Rainfall amounts of 3-5 inches expected with locally higher amounts. Expecting multiple rounds of storms during this time period and these storms could train over the same areas which will increase the risk of flash flooding. Remember Turn Around, Don’t Drown. Do not try to cross over a flooded road. At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Highs will continue to range between 68 and 83 with lows between 44 and 60. There is a 100% chance of strong storms today, and an 80% chance of strong storms on Tuesday. Major, widespread, and multi-day severe weather/tornado outbreak expected today through Tuesday across the Mid-South and Southeast. Main threats will be for tornadoes (some of which could be strong and long-tracked), large hail, and widespread damaging winds of 60-80mph. Dr. Greg Forbes, the severe weather expert at The Weather Channel, is giving a TOR:CON (Tornado Condition Index) of 7 for MS for today. This means there is a 70% chance of seeing a tornado within a 50 mile radius. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Todays high is 78 and a low of 57 with a 100% chance of strong storms with South-Southwest winds at 16mph with higher gusts. Tuesdays high is 79 with an 80% chance of PM thunderstorms.

Now, for your Severe Weather Update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around May 13th.

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, Tropical Storm Tapah has winds of 60mph, gusting to 70mph, with a pressure of 1000mbars. Movement is North-Northeast at 6mph. Is expected to become a typhoon by late today or by Tuesday. Is not expected to impact any landmasses. 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 35mph with a pressure of 1004mbars. In the Southern Hemisphere (South Pacific Region), no development is expected over the next couple of days.

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

I am fine. Just shaken up a bit from the earlier storms. Were too close for comfort. Had three tornado warnings issued for my county today. The Tupelo, MS tornado was terrible and something unexpected. As far as I know, only one person was killed by it. I do not recall seeing so many Tornado Emergencies issued over a two day period (yesterday and today). We are under the gun again tomorrow with a Moderate Risk issued by the SPC. The short-range models nailed the storms today, so I am kind of concerned about tomorrow. Threats look to be about the same as today.
