Watching Atlantic and Eastern Pacific for possible tropical development

By: JohnnyParker , 11:13 AM GMT on June 18, 2012

Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 66 and it feels like 66. Highs will continue to range between 91 and 99 with lows between 66 and 72. No big rain chances anytime soon except for the isolated pop-up storms. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 68 and it feels like 68. Todays high is 91 with a low of 68. Tuesdays high is 92.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, a well-defined non-tropical surface low pressure system that is located about 200 miles Northeast of Bermuda is producing scattered showers and a few thunderstorms near and west of the center as it interacts with a mid to upper-level low. This developing gale-area could acquire Subtropical characteristics as it moves North-Northeastward at 10-15mph over the next couple of days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a subtropical or tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. In the Eastern Pacific, a broad low pressure system located about 270 miles West-Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico is producing a large area of showers and a few thunderstorms. In addition, a trough of low pressure extends Southeastward from the low across the Eastern Pacific to near the Southern Coast of Mexico. Some slow development of this large disturbance is possible during the next couple of days as it moves slowly Eastward. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Heavy rainfall, flash flooding, and mudslides will continue over portions of Southwestern and South-Central Mexico for the next couple of days.

Hope yall are having a good Monday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and those affected by damaging weather events.
