Highs will continue to range between 82 and 90 with lows between 63 and 71. There is a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms today, and a slight chance of rain on Sunday. Some storms could be strong to severe today and Sunday with large hail, damaging winds, heavy rain, and flash flooding being the main threats. An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out tomorrow. Dr. Greg Forbes, the severe weather expert at The Weather Channel is giving North MS a 2 on TOR:CON (Tornado Condition Index) for today.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Eastern Pacific, a disorganized area of disturbed weather continues several hundred miles Southwest of Acapulco, Mexico. Upper-level winds are expected to become more conducive for development over the next couple of days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves slowly West-Northwestward or Northwestward.
Hope yall are having a great Friday and I'll have another update tomorrow morning.
