Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 39 and it feels like 33. Highs will continue to range between 59 and 71 with lows between 34 and 48. No rain over the next couple of days. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 39 and it feels like 33. Todays high is 58 and a low of 34 with winds out of the North-Northwest at 17mph. Tuesdays high is 62.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, Hurricane Sandy has intensified and remains a major threat to the Northeast. Winds are at 85mph with a pressure of 946mbars. Movement is North at 15mph. Tropical Storm Warning continues for North Carolina Coast and Bermuda. Sandy is expected to head Northward toward the East Coast. Main threats from Sandy will be high waves, rough seas, beach erosion, significant coastal flooding, rip currents, heavy rainfall greater than 5 inches, inland flooding, widespread damaging winds, and heavy snowfall for the higher elevations. In the Eastern Pacific, showers and thunderstorms have changed little in organization in association with a low pressure system located about 650 miles Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Gradual development of this system is possible during the next day or so before upper-level winds become less conducive. 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 or Northwestward at 10-15mph.

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