Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 70 and it feels like 70. Highs will continue to range between 84 and 94 with lows between 59 and 70. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms today, a slight chance of rain tomorrow, a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Wednesday, and a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Friday. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 72 and it feels like 72. Todays high is 94 and a low of 72 with a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms. Tuesdays high is 93 with a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms.

Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around September 17th-24th.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, an elongated area of low pressure, associated with the remnants of Gabrielle, is located about 500 miles South-Southwest of Bermuda. Strong upper-level Westerly winds are displacing shower and thunderstorm activity to the East of the low, and no significant development is expected during the next few days while the low moves Northeastward or North-Northeastward. 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. Also, in the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Humberto has intensified a little. Winds are at 40mph with a pressure of 1005mbars. Movement is West at 12mph. A Tropical Storm Warning is in effect for the Cape-Verde Islands. Is expected to become our first hurricane of the season by early Wednesday morning. Is not a threat to land. Also, in the Atlantic, a broad area of low pressure could form over the Bay of Campeche or the extreme Southwestern Gulf of Mexico in a few days. Environmental conditions should be conducive for some development of this low around that time if it remains over water. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a medium chance, 30%, of becoming during the next 5 days. Regardless of development, locally heavy rains are possible over portions of Eastern Mexico later this week. In the Eastern Pacific, a low pressure area could form South of the Coast of Mexico in a few days, and conditions appear marginally conducive for some development of this disturbance by the end of the week while the low remains nearly stationary. 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. Regardless of development, locally heavy rains are possible over portions of Southern Mexico and Guatemala later this week.

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