At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 59 and it feels like 59. Todays high is 85 with a low of 66. Fridays high is 84 with a slight chance of rain.
Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around August 19th-30th.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, satellite images and surface observations indicate that the weather disturbance in the extreme Northwestern Caribbean Sea has become less organized overnight with most of the shower activity now moving over the Yucatan Peninsula and Belize. Development of this system before it moves over land has become less likely. However, there is still potential for development once the disturbance moves over the Gulf of Mexico. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 50%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a high chance, 60%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. Also, in the Atlantic, we have Tropical Storm Erin. Winds are at 40mph with a pressure of 1006mbars. Movement is West-Northwest at 16mph. Is not expected to become a hurricane and could head toward the Windward Islands by next week. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for Praia and parts of the Cape Verde Islands. In the Eastern Pacific, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days.
Hope yall are having a great Thursday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
