Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 53 and it feels like 53. Highs will continue to range between 64 and 83 with lows between 42 and 59. No rain over the next couple of days. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 55 and it feels like 55. Todays high is 81 with a low of 53. Tuesdays high is 79.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, a large low pressure system located a couple hundred miles South of Jamaica is producing widespread cloudiness and scattered thunderstorms over the Central and Southwestern Caribbean Sea. Environmental conditions are gradually becoming more conducive for a tropical depression to form during the next day or so. 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 slowly to the West-Southwest and becomes nearly stationary well to the South of Jamaica. Also, in the Atlantic, a surface trough interacting with an upper-level low is producing a small area of showers and a few thunderstorms over the Central Atlantic about 750 miles East-Northeast of the Leeward Islands. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for some development before upper-level winds become less favorable on Tuesday. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 40%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it moves Northwestward to North-Northwestward at about 10mph. In the Eastern Pacific, showers and thunderstorms continue in association with an elongated low pressure system located about 400 miles South-Southeast of Acapulco, Mexico. Some gradual development of this disturbance is possible over the next few days as it moves Westward at about 10mph. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours.
Hope yall are having a great Monday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
