Good Morning! At Smithville, MS, the current temperature is 68 and it feels like 68. Highs will continue to range between 80 and 93 with lows between 56 and 65. There is a slight chance of rain on Friday. At the Regional Rehab Center in Tupelo, MS, the current temperature is 71 and it feels like 71. Todays high is 92 with a low of 69. Thursdays high is 94.
Now, for your severe weather update for the Southeast Region. Could see severe weather potential around September 17th-26th.
Now, for your tropical update. In the Atlantic, Tropical Storm Gabrielle has winds of 50mph with a pressure of 1008mbars. Movement is Northwest at 8mph. Gabrielle is expected to weaken as it heads up toward Newfoundland, Canada by Saturday. Also, in the Atlantic, Hurricane Humberto has winds of 75mph with a pressure of 992mbars. Movement is -North-Northwest at 8mph. Is expected to intensify some over the next few days. Is not a threat to land. Also, in the Atlantic, a trough of low pressure along the Coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and Belize is producing disorganized showers and thunderstorms. The trough should move over land today and enter the Bay of Campeche on Thursday. Some development is possible after the system emerges over water, and the National Hurricane Center is giving this system a medium chance, 30%, of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours. Assuming the system remains offshore, upper-level winds should be conducive for the formation of a tropical depression over the Southwestern Gulf of Mexico later in the week, and the National Hurricane Center is giving this system a high chance, 70%, of becoming during the next 5 days. Locally heavy rains and gusty winds are possible over Belize, Guatemala, and the Yucatan Peninsula of Mexico during the next day or two. In the Eastern Pacific, all is quiet with no development expected over the next couple of days.
Hope you are having a great Wednesday and I'll have another post tomorrow morning.
