Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Highs will continue to range between 78 and 94 with lows between 59 and 72. There is an 80% chance of scattered thunderstorms today and a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms tomorrow. Few storms could be strong to severe later today/Tuesday with the main threats being large hail and damaging winds up to 60mph. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 72 and it feels like 72. Todays high is 92 and a low of 72 with an 80% chance of AM thundershowers. Tuesdays high is 94 with a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we have Tropical Storm Leslie. Winds are at 60mph with a pressure of 998mbars. Movement is North-Northwest at 8mph. Expected to become a hurricane by Thursday and headed toward Bermuda. Also, in the Atlantic, a small low pressure system centered about 1175 miles Northwest of the Cape-Verde Islands is producing a concentrated area of showers and thunderstorms. Although, upper-level winds are only marginally conducive, some gradual development of this disturbance is still possible over the next few days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. In the Eastern Pacific, we have Tropical Storm John. Winds are at 40mph with a pressure of 1001mbars. Movement is Northwest at 14mph. Is not a threat to land and will not reach hurricane intensity.

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