Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Highs will continue to range between 87 and 91 with lows between 66 and 70. There is a slight chance of rain today and tomorrow. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 72 and it feels like 72. Todays high is 90 and a low of 71 with a slight chance of rain. Fridays high is 91 with a slight chance of rain.

Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around August 25th-September 6th.

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, showers and thunderstorms have reformed during the past few hours near the center of a low pressure system located about 425 miles South-Southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and it appears that a tropical depression could be forming. If this trend continues, advisories would be initiated today. The low is expected to move North-Northwestward at 5-10mph and reach colder water West of the Baja California Peninsula by Saturday. Therefore, conditions do not favor development after 48 hours. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a high chance, 90%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a high chance, 90%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. Also, in the Eastern Pacific, a broad area of low pressure is located about 900 miles Southwest of the Southern Tip of the Baja California Peninsula continues to produce limited shower and thunderstorm activity. The low is expected to become absorbed into the circulation associated with the larger low pressure system located to its East-Northeast in a couple of days and the chance of development appears to be diminishing. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. Also, in the Eastern Pacific, an area of low pressure could form South of the Southern Coast of Mexico by early next week and environmental conditions appear favorable for some development. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days.

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