Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 64 and it feels like 64. Highs will continue to range between 68 and 86 with lows between 48 and 65. There is a slight chance of rain today, a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms tomorrow, a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Thursday, a slight chance of rain on Friday, a 60% chance of scattered thunderstorms on Saturday, and a 30% chance of a few showers on Sunday. Some storms could be strong to severe this weekend with large hail and damaging winds being the main threats. An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out. In addition to the severe weather threat, we may see a heavy rain/flash flood threat as well. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 66 and it feels like 66. Todays high is 85 and a low of 66 with a slight chance of rain. Wednesdays high is 85 with a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms.

Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around October 7th-16th.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Jerry has winds of 45mph with a pressure of 1005mbars. Movement is stationary. May be a threat to the Azore Islands. Also, in the Atlantic, shower and thunderstorm activity has increased and become more concentrated near the center of a large low pressure system that is located about 120 miles East of the Nicaragua-Honduras Border. Some gradual development of this system is possible during the next couple of days while it moves Northwestward at around 10mph, and the National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Upper-level winds are expected to be marginally conducive for additional development when the disturbance moves over the Northwestern Caribbean Sea and Southern Gulf of Mexico later this week, and the National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 50%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds will continue over portions of Jamaica and Eastern Cuba today. These rains will spread Westward across the rest of Cuba and the Cayman Islands tonight and Wednesday. In the Eastern Pacific, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days.

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