Good Afternoon! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 89, but it feels like 96. Highs will continue to range between 87 and 94 with lows between 63 and 71. There is a slight chance of rain today. Better chance of rain Wednesday into Thursday. These rains could be associated with Isaac. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 86, but it feels like 92. Today’s high is 89 and a low of 66 with a slight chance of rain. Mondays high is 94.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we now have Tropical Storm Isaac. Winds are at 60mph with a pressure of 994mbars. Movement is West-Northwest at 18mph. Expected to become a hurricane by late Sunday or early Monday morning. Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for Andros Island, Part of West/East coast of Florida, the Bahamas, and little part of North Cuba. Hurricane Warning in effect for the Florida Keys. Tropical Storm Watch is up for a bit of the East coast of Florida, little part of North Cuba, part of the Panhandle of Florida. Hurricane Watch is up for Panama City, Florida back to New Orleans, Louisiana. As of now, path of Isaac has changed and has it making landfall late Tuesday night/early Wednesday morning on the coasts of Louisiana/MS. In the Atlantic, area of low pressure centered about 750 miles West of the Cape Verde Islands has become better defined today. Environmental conditions appear to support further development and the National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 50%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves West-Northwestward to Northwestward at 10-15mph. In the Eastern Pacific, showers and thunderstorms have become a little better organized in association with an area of low pressure located about 300 miles South-Southwest of Acapulco, Mexico. Some development of this low is possible during the next couple of days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 40%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves West-Northwestward at about 10mph.
