Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 68 and it feels like 68. Highs will continue to range between 67 and 81 with lows between 44 and 56. There is a 60% chance of PM thunderstorms today. Some storms could be strong to severe with large hail and damaging winds. An isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled out. Dr. Greg Forbes, the severe weather expert at The Weather Channel, is giving North MS a TOR:CON (Tornado Condition Index) of a 2 to 3 tomorrow. This means that there is a 20 to 30% chance of seeing a tornado within a 50% mile radius. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 68 and it feels like 68. Todays high is 78 and a low of 54 with a 50% chance of scattered thunderstorms/wind. Mondays high is 74.
