Now, for your Severe Weather Update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around August 27th-September 4th.

Now, for your Nationwide Severe Weather Outlook. The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) has a (#1) Slight Risk of severe weather today across parts of Southern North Dakota and Eastern South Dakota, and into adjacent Southwestern Minnesota, Northern Nebraska, and Northwestern Iowa. Main threats will be for damaging winds, large hail, isolated tornadoes, heavy rain, and flash flooding.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, (#1) Disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity is associated with an elongated area of low pressure located several hundred miles East of the Windward Islands. Gradual development of this system is possible during the next few days while it moves West-Northwestward at 10 to 15mph across the Lesser Antilles and into the Caribbean Sea. Interests in the Lesser Antilles and the Northeastern Caribbean Sea should closely monitor the progress of this system. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a Medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a Medium chance, 50%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. (#2) A tropical wave located about 1000 miles East of the Lesser Antilles continues to produce disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Any development of this system should be slow to occur during the next day or two while it moves toward the West-Northwest at about 10mph. After that time, development of this system is not anticipated as it begins to interact with the disturbance located to its West. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a Low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a Low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Eastern Pacific, (#1) Tropical Storm Karina has winds of 50mph, gusting to 65mph, with a pressure of 1000mbars. Movement is West at 5mph. Is expected to maintain tropical storm intensity until late Sunday. Is not a threat to any landmasses. (#2) Tropical Storm Lowell has winds of 50mph, gusting to 65mph, with a pressure of 996mbars. Movement is Northwest at 5mph. Is expected to remain a tropical storm over the next 4 days until it weakens to a depression by late Saturday. Is not a threat to land. (#3) A broad area of low pressure is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms several hundred miles South of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Environmental conditions are forecast to be conducive for this system to develop into a tropical depression by the end of the week while it moves West-Northwestward at about 10mph. The National Hurricane Center (NHC) is giving this system a Medium chance, 40%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a High chance, 80%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Central Pacific, (#1) A center of low pressure was nearly stationary about 850 miles South of Honolulu. Irregular, pulsing thunderstorms continued to develop around the low, but this feature has changed little in organization during the past 24 hours. The Central Pacific Hurricane Center (CPHC) is giving this system a Low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. 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), no development is expected over the next couple of days. In the Southern Hemisphere (South Pacific Region), no development is expected over the next couple of days.
