Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 74 and it feels like 74. Highs will continue to range between 86 and 93 with lows between 60 and 70. There is a 80% chance of scattered thunderstorms today, a slight chance of rain tomorrow, and a slight chance of rain on Saturday. Few storms could be strong to severe today with main threats being for heavy rain, flash flooding, quarter size hail, and damaging winds up to 60mph. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 78 and it feels like 78. Todays high is 93 and a low of 74 with an 80% chance of scattered thunderstorms. Tuesdays high is 89 with a slight chance of rain.
Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around September 10th-17th.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, disorganized cloudiness and showers in association with an elongated area of low pressure extend from the Eastern Caribbean Sea across the Lesser Antilles and into the Tropical Atlantic. Although upper-level winds are favorable, the proximity to dry air in the middle levels of the atmosphere is inhibiting development of this disturbance. 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, 50%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days while it moves Westward to West-Northwestward at 10 to 15mph over the Caribbean Sea, and near or over Hispaniola. Regardless of whether or not a tropical cyclone forms, locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds are expected to affect portions of the Lesser Antilles over the next day or so. Also, in the Atlantic, a tropical wave located over the Northwestern Caribbean Sea is moving West-Northwestward at about 10mph. This system is expected to move across the Yucatan Peninsula today and into the Bay of Campeche Tuesday through Thursday, where some development is possible later in 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 low chance, 20%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days as it moves West-Northwestward at 10mph. In the Eastern Pacific, Tropical Depression Kiko has weakened and should dissipate later today. Winds are at 35mph with a pressure of 1005mbars. Movement is North-Northwest at 5mph. Is not a threat to land. Also, in the Eastern Pacific, a large area of cloudiness and thunderstorms extending from the South-Central Coast of Mexico South-Southwestward for several hundred miles is associated with a tropical wave. A broad area of low pressure is forecast to develop along the wave off of the Southwestern Coast of Mexico by midweek, and environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for slow development of the low at that time. 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, 50%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 5 days while it moves West-Northwestward around 10mph.
Hope yall are having a great Monday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
