Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 50 and it feels like 50. Highs will continue to range between 60 and 80 with lows between 38 and 62. Now, for Friday. There is a 70% chance of strong storms/wind. Winds will be out of the South-Southwest at 15-25mph with higher gusts. Friday's outbreak could be major. Main threats are: large hail up to golf-ball size, damaging winds up to 70mph, and tornadoes (a few of which could be strong.) Secondary threats will be heavy rain between 1-3 inches and flash flooding. The Storm Prediction Center has given a Moderate Risk of severe weather for parts of the South for Friday. At this time, the worse of the storms look to come in between 2pm to 10pm Friday. Dr. Greg Forbes, the severe weather expert at The Weather Channel, has given a TOR:CON (Tornado Condition Index) of a 6 out of 10 for North MS. This is a 60% chance of seeing a tornado within a 50 mile radius. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 48 and it feels like 48. Todays high is 74. Tonights low is 61 with a 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms. Fridays high is 78 with a 70% chance of strong storms/wind. Winds will be out of the South-Southwest at 20-30mph with higher gusts. Hope yall are having a great Thursday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning. Continue to pray for the tornado victims and those affected by damaging weather events.
