Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 69 and it feels like 69. Highs will continue to range between 83 and 90 with lows between 61 and 68. There is a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms today, a slight chance of rain on Sunday, a slight chance of rain on Tuesday, a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms on Wednesday, a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms on Thursday, and a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Friday. Few storms could be strong to severe today with large hail and gusty winds being the main threats. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Todays high is 85 and a low of 68 with a 40% chance of scattered thunderstorms. Sundays high is 89.
Now, for your Severe Weather Update for the Southeast Region. There could be severe weather potential around the May 31st-June 2nd.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days. In the Eastern Pacific, an area of low pressure, associated with the remnants of Alvin, continues about 850 miles Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Although satellite data suggest that the low-level circulation of the low is well-defined, shower and thunderstorm activity remains disorganized. Strong upper-level westerly winds are expected to inhibit any significant development. This system has a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone again during the next 48 hours as it moves Westward at around 10mph.
Hope yall are having a great Saturday and I'll have another post tomorrow.
