Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 64 and it feels like 64. Highs will continue to range between 84 and 94 with lows between 66 and 70. No rain until late next week. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 64 and it feels like 64. Today’s high is 92 with a low of 67. Saturdays high is 90.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we now have Tropical Storm Isaac. Winds are at 45mph with a pressure of 1000mbars. Movement is West at 15mph. Expected to become a hurricane by early Tuesday morning. Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for Haiti, Dominican Republic, Southeast Bahamas, Turk/Caicos, and Eastern Cuba. Tropical Storm Watch is up for the Turks/Caicos ,the Southern Bahamas, Jamaica, and Central Cuba. Hurricane Watch is up for Haiti. As of now, path of Isaac would have it making landfall near Mobile, Alabama or on the border of Alabama/Florida. In the Atlantic, we now have Tropical Depression Joyce. Winds are at 35mph with a pressure of 1008mbars. Movement is Northwest at 14mph. Headed toward Bermuda and will remain weak. Also, in the Atlantic, showers and thunderstorms near the West coast of Africa that are associated with a tropical wave have increased. Slow development of this wave is possible over the next couple of days and the National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves West or West-Northwest at about 15mph. In the Eastern Pacific, an area of disturbed weather has formed a few hundred miles South-Southwest of the Coast of Guatemala. Some slow development of this system is possible during the next couple of days as it generally moves Westward at 10 to 15mph. 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 Friday and I'll have another post tomorrow.
