Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 66 and it feels like 66. Highs will continue to range between 84 and 90 with lows between 63 and 71. There is a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms today. Better chance of rain/storms on Thursday and Friday. Few storms could be strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 69 and it feels like 69. Today’s high is 89 with a low of 69. Thursdays high is 90.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, a low pressure system located 715 miles East-Southeast of Bermuda is gradually becoming better defined. Shower and thunderstorm activity has increased over the past several hours and if this trend continues, a tropical depression could form later today. The National Hurricane Center is now giving this system a high chance, 80%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves North-Northwestward at about 15mph. Also, in the Atlantic, remnants of Tropical Depression Seven are located over Western Honduras and the coast of Belize. Environmental conditions are not expected to be conducive for regeneration and this system has a low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone again during the next 48 hours as it moves West-Northwestward at 15 to 20mph. In the Eastern Pacific, we have Tropical Storm Hector. Winds are at 40mph with a pressure of 1002mbars. Movement is West at 2mph. Hector is weakening and should become a tropical depression by late Wednesday night.

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