Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 42 and it feels like 42. Highs will continue to range between 68 and 81 with lows between 45 and 54. No rain over the next couple of days. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 44 and it feels like 44. Todays high is 70 with a low of 47. Sundays high is 78.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, a large, but disorganized area of cloudiness and thunderstorms between Hispaniola and Northern South America is primarily associated with a tropical wave. Environmental conditions are forecast to become more favorable for development during the next day or two as the disturbance moves Westward over the Central and Western Caribbean Sea. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Also, in the Atlantic, a concentrated area of cloudiness and thunderstorms centered about 1000 miles East-Northeast of the Leeward Islands is associated with a tropical wave interacting with an upper-level low. Although there are no signs of a surface circulation, upper-level winds could become a little more conducive for development during the next day or two. 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 slowly West-Northwestward at about 10mph. In the Eastern Pacific, all is quiet.
Hope yall are having a great Saturday and I'll have another post tomorrow.
