Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 73 and it feels like 73. Highs will continue to range between 86 and 90 with lows between 66 and 70. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms today, and a slight chance of rain tomorrow. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 74 and it feels like 74. Todays high is 89 and a low of 71 with a slight chance of rain. Thursdays high is 91.
Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around August 25th-September 5th.
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 located about 600 miles Southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico is showing signs of organization. Environmental conditions appear conducive for additional development, and a tropical depression will likely form during the next day or two. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a high chance, 60%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, but a high chance, 90%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days while it moves Northwestward and then North-Northwestward. Also, in the Eastern Pacific, a broad area of low pressure is located about 900 miles Southwest of the Southern Tip of the Baja California Peninsula. Some development of this system is possible during the next several days. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a medium chance, 40%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days while it remains nearly stationary or moves slowly Northward.
Hope yall are having a great Wednesday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
