Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Highs will continue to range between 91 and 97 with lows between 72 and 74. Rain chances should be low going into this week, but isolated pop-up storms will be possible each day. Few storms could be strong to severe with large hail and gusty winds. Heavy rain and localized flash flooding will also be a threat. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 74 and it feels like 74. Today’s high is 95 with a low of 73. Tuesdays high is 97.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, an area of disturbed weather near the Bahamas, South Florida, and the Florida keys is not expected to develop. Cloudiness and showers associated with the disturbance have diminished. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. In the Eastern Pacific, an area of low pressure located about 275 miles South-Southeast of Manzanillo, Mexico is producing widespread cloudiness and scattered thunderstorms. Upper-level winds and other environmental conditions are becoming more conducive for a tropical depression to form over the next couple of days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a high chance, 80%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves West or West-Northwest at 10 to 15mph.

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