Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 40 and it feels like 40. Highs will continue to range between 71 and 84 with lows between 42 and 60. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 42 and it feels like 39. Todays high is 69 and a low of 52. Wednesdays high is 73 with a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, disorganized showers and thunderstorms a couple hundred miles Northeast of the Bahamas are associated with a weak area of low pressure centered just to the East of Eleuthera Island. Upper-level winds have become unfavorable for development. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 10%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Also, in the Atlantic, a tropical wave accompanied by a broad area of low pressure and located about 1050 miles East of the Windward Islands is producing a large area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms. Any development of this system during the next couple of days should be slow to occur due to marginally favorable environmental conditions. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves West-Northwestward at about 15mph. In the Eastern Pacific, Tropical Storm Olivia has dissipated.
Hope yall are having a great Tuesday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
