Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 62 and it feels like 62. Highs will continue to range between 85 and 98 with lows between 65 and 72. There is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms on Monday and Tuesday. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 64 and it feels like 64. Todays high is 91 with a low of 69. Wednesdays high is 94.
Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around August 31st-September 11th.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Fernand dissipated yesterday over Mexico. Also, in the Atlantic, a tropical wave located a couple hundred miles Southwest of the Cape Verde Islands is expected to move Westward over the tropical Atlantic at about 15mph over the next several days. Environmental conditions appear somewhat conducive for an area low pressure to form well East of the Windward Islands by the end of the week. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a low chance, 0%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours, and a medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. In the Eastern Pacific, an area of low pressure continues to produce showers and thunderstorms extending from the Southwestern Coast of Mexico Southward over the Pacific for several hundred miles. Environmental conditions still appear conducive for the formation of a tropical depression during the next couple of days, but the disturbance has a broad and complex structure that could limit development. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 50%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours while moving West-Northwestward at about 15mph. The low is expected to reach colder water West of the Baja California Peninsula by Thursday, and further development after that time is not likely. The National Hurricane Center is giving this system a high chance, 60%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days. Locally heavy rainfall is expected to continue over portions of Southwestern Mexico during the next few days in association with the low and interests in that area should monitor the progress of this system.
Hope yall are having a great Tuesday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
