Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 68 and it feels like 68. A Special Weather Statement continues for North MS concerning severe weather potential late today into early Friday. A Wind Advisory is in effect for North MS until 1am Friday morning. South winds sustained at 25mph with gusts up to 40mph are expected. Highs will continue to range between 60 and 86 with lows between 38 and 55. There is a slight chance of rain/wind late today, and a slight chance of rain on Friday. Significant severe weather outbreak likely late Thursday afternoon into Thursday night. Main threats will be for heavy rain of 1-3 inches with locally 3+ inches, flash flooding, large hail, widespread damaging winds of 60-80mph, and tornadoes (a few which could be strong). Timing of these storms will be from 4pm-9pm Thursday for Western MS, 9pm Thursday night-2am Friday morning for Central MS, and from 12am-4am Friday morning for Eastern MS. Dr. Greg Forbes, the severe weather expert at The Weather Channel, is giving North MS a 4 on TOR:CON (Tornado Condition Index) for tomorrow. This means that there is a 40% chance of seeing a tornado within a 50 mile radius. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Todays high is 83 and a low of 47 with a slight chance of rain/wind. Fridays high is 58 with a slight chance of rain.

Now, for your Severe Weather Update for the Southeast Region. There could be severe weather potential around April 23rd-24th, and again around April 27th-May 3rd.

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