Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 75 and it feels like 75. Highs will continue to range between 86 and 94 with lows between 66 and 72. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Saturday, a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms on Sunday, a 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms on Monday, a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms on Tuesday, a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Wednesday, and a slight chance of rain on Friday. Some storms could be strong to severe from Saturday through next week with main threats being for damaging winds, heavy rain, and flash flooding. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 73 and it feels like 73. Todays high is 92 with a low of 68. Fridays high is 94.

Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around August 5th-16th.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, all is quiet. In the Eastern Pacific, we now have Hurricane Gil. Winds are at 80mph with a pressure of 990mbars. Movement is West-Northwest at 12mph. Gil is expected intensify over the next day or two, and then begin to weaken. Is not a threat to land. Also, in the Eastern Pacific, showers and thunderstorms associated with a low pressure system located 750 miles South-Southwest of the Southern Tip of the Baja California Peninsula have diminished during the past several hours. Although the proximity to Hurricane Gil reduces the chance of development, 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 generally Westward at 10mph.

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