Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 70 and it feels like 70. Highs will continue to range between 78 and 94 with lows between 56 and 70. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms today. Few storms could be strong to severe with the main threats being large hail and damaging winds up to 60mph. There is a possibility for severe weather on Friday into Saturday across the South. Main threats will be for damaging winds and large hail. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 72 and it feels like 72. Todays high is 93 and a low of 72 with a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms. Fridays high is 94.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we have Hurricane Leslie. Winds are at 75mph with a pressure of 985mbars. Movement is North at 1mph. Headed toward Bermuda. Also, in the Atlantic, we have Hurricane Michael. Winds are at 115mph with a pressure of 965mbars. Movement is Northeast at 7mph. Michael is not a threat to land. In the Atlantic, a low pressure system located over the North-Central Gulf of Mexico East of the Mouth of the Mississippi River, is producing disorganized shower and thunderstorm activity mainly to the South and Southwest of the Center of Circulation. Upper-level winds are expected to be marginally conducive for development of this disturbance as it moves slowly South-Southwestward during the next couple of days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 50%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. An Air Force Reconnaissance Aircraft is scheduled to investigate this system this afternoon, if necessary.

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