Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 68 and it feels like 68. A Special Weather Statement is in effect for North MS concerning severe weather potential late Thursday into early Friday morning. Highs will continue to range between 62 and 87 with lows between 40 and 64. There is a slight chance of rain today, a slight chance of rain/wind tomorrow, and a slight chance of rain on Friday. Significant severe weather outbreak likely late Thursday afternoon into Thursday night. Main threats will be for heavy rain of 1-3 inches with locally 3+ inches, flash flooding, large hail, widespread damaging winds of 60-80mph, and tornadoes. Dr. Greg Forbes, the severe weather expert at The Weather Channel, is giving Western MS a 3 on TOR:CON (Tornado Condition Index) for Thursday. This means that there is a 30% chance of seeing a tornado within a 50 mile radius. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 66 and it feels like 66. Todays high is 85 and a low of 65 with a slight chance of rain. Thursdays high is 84 with a slight chance of rain/wind.

Now, for your Severe Weather Update for the Southeast Region. There could be severe weather potential around April 23rd-27th, and again around April 28th-May 1st.

Hope yall are having a great Wednesday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
