Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 64 and it feels like 64. Highs will continue to range between 90 and 98 with lows between 66 and 71. No big rain chances anytime soon. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 70 and it feels like 70. Today’s high is 92 with a low of 68. Thursdays high is 93.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Chris has formed. Winds are at 45mph with a pressure of 1005mbars. Movement is East at 17mph. Chris is no threat to the United States. A low pressure trough, that is producing cloudiness, showers, and thunderstorms over the Northwestern Caribbean Sea stretching into the Bahamas. Upper-level winds are not particularly conducive for development and the National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. In the Eastern Pacific, a broad low pressure system located about 225 miles West-Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico has become a less organized and upper-level winds are only marginally favorable for development. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 40%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

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