Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 68 and it feels like 68. Highs will continue to range between 84 and 92 with lows between 61 and 71. There is a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms today. Few storms could be strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds. An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Today’s high is 89 with a low of 70. Tuesdays high is 88.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, broad area of low pressure located 1200 miles West-Northwest of the Cape-Verde Islands is producing minimal shower activity. No significant development is expected with this system in the next couple of days. However, after that time, conditions may become more favorable for development. The National Hurricane Center is now giving this system a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves West-Northwestward at about 20mph. Also, in the Atlantic, remnants of Tropical Depression Seven are located over the Central Caribbean Sea and moving Westward at around 20mph. Environmental conditions are not expected to be conducive for regeneration and this system has a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone again during the next 48 hours. In the Eastern Pacific, Tropical Depression Gilma dissipated yesterday afternoon. Also in the Eastern Pacific, we have Tropical Storm Hector. Winds are at 40mph with a pressure of 994mbars. Movement is West at 7mph. Expected to intensify, but not become a hurricane and is not a threat to land. In the Eastern Pacific, a weak area of low pressure located 175 miles Southeast of Acapulco, Mexico continues to produce shower and thunderstorm activity. Some development is possible with this system during the next couple of days if it remains offshore as it moves West-Northwestward at 10mph. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.

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