Good morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 70 and it feels like 70. Highs will continue to range between 74 and 85 with lows between 46 and 65. There is a 100% chance of rain/thunder today, and a 60% chance of showers on Tuesday. Few storms could be strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds. Heavy rainfall of 2-3 inches are likely with isolated amounts of 3+ possible. Flash flooding may also be a threat. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 69 and it feels like 69. Todays high is 74 and a low of 65 with a 100% chance of rain/thunder. Tuesdays high is 74 with a 50% chance of showers.

Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, we have Tropical Storm Nadine. Nadine has winds of 70mph with a pressure of 985mbars. Movement is East-Northeast at 17mph. Headed toward the Azore Islands. In the Atlantic, a weak area of low pressure located 250 miles East of the Windward Islands is producing minimal shower activity. Environmental conditions are not conducive for development and the National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves Westward at around 15mph. Also, in the Gulf of Mexico, disorganized showers and thunderstorms over the Northwestern Gulf of Mexico and Southeastern Texas are associated with a weak surface low pressure area and a large upper-trough of low pressure. Due to strong upper-level winds, the National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 10%, of becoming a subtropical or tropical cyclone before it moves inland along the North-Central Gulf Coast by early Tuesday. In the Eastern Pacific, we have Tropical Depression Kristy. Winds are at 35mph with a pressure of 1009mbars. Movement is North-Northwest at 7mph. Is not a threat to land and should dissipate later today. In the Eastern Pacific, we have Hurricane Lane. Winds are at 75mph with a pressure of 993mbars. Movement is North-Northwest at 9mph. Is not a threat to land.

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