Good Afternoon! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 85, but it feels like 87. Highs will continue to range between 83 and 91 with lows between 63 and 71. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Monday. Few storms could be strong to severe on Monday with large hail and damaging winds being the main threats. An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 85, but it feels like 84. Today’s high is 87 with a low of 66. Mondays high is 88.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, broad area of low pressure located 500 miles West-Northwest of the Cape-Verde Islands is producing minimal shower activity. No significant development is expected with this system as it moves over cool waters. The National Hurricane Center is now giving this system a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves West-Northwestward at about 20mph. Also, in the Atlantic, remnants of Tropical Depression Seven are located over the Windward Islands and moving Westward at around 20mph. Environmental conditions are not expected to be conducive for regeneration and this system has a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone again during the next 48 hours. In the Eastern Pacific, Tropical Depression Gilma dissipated yesterday afternoon. Also in the Eastern Pacific, we have Tropical Storm Hector. Winds are at 45mph with a pressure of 997mbars. Movement is West at 10mph. Expected to intensify, but not become a hurricane and is not a threat to land. In the Eastern Pacific, a trough of low pressure near the Gulf of Tehuantepec has seen an increase in shower and thunderstorm activity. Some development is possible with this system during the next couple of days as it moves West-Northwestward at 10mph. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.
