Good morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 67 and it feels like 67. Highs will continue to range between 73 and 86 with lows between 46 and 67. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms today, a 90% chance of rain/thunder on Monday, and a 60% chance of showers on Tuesday. Few storms could be strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds. Heavy rainfall of 2-3 inches are likely with isolated amounts of 3+ possible. Flash flooding may also be a threat. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 70 and it feels like 70. Todays high is 85 and a low of 68 with a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms. Mondays high is 74 with an 80% chance of rain/thunder.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we have Hurricane Nadine. Nadine has winds of 80mph with a pressure of 983mbars. Movement is East at 17mph. May impact the Azore Islands. In the Atlantic, an elongated area of low pressure in association with the tropical wave located several hundred miles East of the Windward Islands is producing a large area of cloudiness and disorganized showers and thunderstorms. While upper-level winds are currently marginal for significant development, they could become more conducive in a 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 Westward to West-Northwestward at around 15mph. In the Eastern Pacific, we have Tropical Storm Kristy. Winds are at 40mph with a pressure of 1004mbars. Movement is Northwest at 9mph. Is not a threat to land. In the Eastern Pacific, we have Tropical Storm Lane. Winds are at 60mph with a pressure of 1001mbars. Movement is West at 7mph. Is not a threat to land and may become a hurricane later today.

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