Good morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 56 and it feels like 56. Highs will continue to range between 79 and 86 with lows between 60 and 65. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Saturday and Sunday. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 59 and it feels like 59. Todays high is 85 with a low of 62. Tuesdays high is 85.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we have Tropical Storm Leslie. Winds are at 70mph with a pressure of 968mbars. Movement is North-Northeast at 40mph. Headed toward Canada. A Tropical Storm Warning and Hurricane Watch is in effect for parts of Newfoundland. Also, in the Atlantic, we have Tropical Storm Michael. Winds are at 65mph with a pressure of 994mbars. Movement is North at 18mph. No threat to land. In the Atlantic, a large low pressure system located midway between the Cape-Verde Islands and the Lesser Antilles continues to show signs of organization. Only a slight increase in thunderstorm activity could result in the formation of a tropical depression at any time. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a high chance, 90%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves West-Northwestward at 15-20mph. In the Eastern Pacific, showers and thunderstorms have become concentrated in association with a low pressure system located a few hundred miles South-Southwest of the Gulf of Tehuantepec. Environmental conditions remain conducive for development and a tropical depression could form within a couple of days. 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 at 10-15mph.

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