Good Morning! Significant winter storm/ice event is likely between late today into Friday night with multiple rounds of winter weather expected possibly into Monday. Main threats will be for freezing rain and sleet across Northeast MS. Some freezing rain accumulations are possible. Main threats for parts of Northwest MS up towards Memphis will be for significant ice accumulations and some snow accumulations. Travel across North MS and portions of the mid-south will be hazardous, so use extreme caution. Power outages will also be possible especially in Northwest portions of MS up towards Memphis. At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 69 and it feels like 69. Highs will continue to range between 42 and 72 with lows between 23 and 46. There is a 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms today, a 90% chance of rain tomorrow, a 30% chance of a few showers on Saturday, an 80% chance of rain on Sunday, and a slight chance of rain on Monday. Heavy rainfall of 1-3 inches is expected over the weekend with locally higher amounts and flash flooding will be possible. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 67 and it feels like 67. Todays high is 69 and a low of 41 with a 60% chance of thundershowers. Fridays high is 42 with an 80% chance of rain.
Now, for your severe/winter weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around December 14th-15th, and the 20th.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, showers and thunderstorms have increased in association with a non-tropical low centered about 450 miles South of the Azores Islands. The low is producing winds of near 60mph, and some additional development of this system is possible during the next day or so before it is affected by strong upper-level winds and moves over colder water. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a subtropical or tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a low chance, 20%, of becoming a subtropical or tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Eastern Pacific, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Western Pacific, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the North Indian Ocean, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Southern Hemisphere, 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. God Bless!
