Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 52 and it feels like 52. Highs will continue to range between 64 and 86 with lows between 41 and 57.

Todays high is 78 and a low of 54 with a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms. Thursdays high is 82.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Nadine is weakening. Winds are at 50mph with a pressure of 998mbars. Movement is East-Northeast at 10mph. Is not a threat to land. Also, in the Atlantic, shower and thunderstorm activity associated with a large low pressure system located about 1000 miles West of the Cape-Verde Islands continues to show signs of organization. Environmental conditions are forecast to remain conducive for development and this disturbance could become a tropical depression later today. 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 Northwestward at 10-15mph. In the Eastern Pacific, a large and disorganized area of disturbed weather extends from South of the Coast of Guatemala Westward for several hundred miles. Upper-level winds are currently only marginally conducive for development. However, they are forecast to become more favorable in another day or so. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves generally Westward to West-Northwestward at around 10mph.
Hope yall are having a great Wednesday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
