Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 70 and it feels like 70. Highs will continue to range between 85 and 96 with lows between 60 and 72. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorm on Sunday, and a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms on Monday. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 72 and it feels like 72. Todays high is 96 with a low of 73. Saturdays high is 96.

Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around September 2nd-14th.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, a broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave has slowed down and it is still located over extreme Western Africa. Environmental conditions appear conducive for development, and this system has the potential to become a tropical depression during the next couple of days when the low moves between the West Coast of Africa and the Cape Verde Islands. After that time, conditions are expected to become a less conducive for development as the system moves toward the West-Northwest over the Eastern Atlantic. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 40%, 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. Whether this system becomes a tropical cyclone or not, it will likely bring cloudiness and thunderstorms to portions of the Cape Verde Islands in the next 2 or 3 days. Also, in the Atlantic, shower activity associated with a tropical wave located about 700 miles East of the Lesser Antilles. This disturbance is expected to move Westward toward a region where the upper-level winds are not favorable for development. 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, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Eastern Pacific, shower activity associated with an area of low pressure centered about 525 miles Southwest of the Southern Tip of the Baja California Peninsula remains disorganized this morning. Some development of this system is possible during the next day or so while this system moves Northward at 10-15mph. The low is forecast to reach cooler waters in about a day and development after that time is not expected. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. Also, in the Eastern Pacific, shower and thunderstorm activity associated with an area of low pressure located about 1550 miles West-Southwest of the Southern Tip of the Baja California Peninsula has changed little overnight. Any development of this system should be slow to occur during the next couple of days as it moves slowly Northeastward. The National Hurricane Center is giving this disturbance a low chance, 10%, 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 you are having a great Friday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
