Good Afternoon! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 78 and it feels like 78. Highs will continue to range between 81 and 87 with lows between 55 and 64. No rain over the next couple of days. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 76 and it feels like 76. Todays high is 79 with a low of 56. Mondays high is 83.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we have Tropical Storm Leslie. Winds are at 60mph with a pressure of 988mbars. Movement is North at 10mph. Headed toward Bermuda and then Canada. A Tropical Storm Warning is now in effect for Bermuda. Also, in the Atlantic, we have Hurricane Michael. Winds are at 90mph with a pressure of 978mbars. Movement is West at 5mph. No threat to land. In the Atlantic, shower activity associated with an area of low pressure located a few hundred miles West of the Cape-Verde Islands has become less organized today. Although upper-level winds are generally favorable, dry air in the vicinity of this disturbance could hinder development during the next day or so. 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 10-15mph. In the Eastern Pacific, shower and thunderstorm activity has increased in association with a broad area of low pressure located a few hundred miles South of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Environmental conditions are conducive for gradual development of this disturbance during the next couple of days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves West-Northwestward at 10-15mph.

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