MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The First Alert Weather Team is tracking our next chance for rain in the Mid-South. A slow-moving cold front will tap into gulf moisture and cause heavy rain and thunderstorms beginning on Wednesday afternoon.

A few showers will start popping up during lunch time on Wednesday, but the heaviest downpours are not expected until after 5 p.m. Heavy rain will continue throughout the overnight hours and into early Thursday morning.

We are anticipating 1-2 inches of rain through Thursday afternoon, but some rainfall totals could be higher in some thunderstorms.

At this point, we are not expecting any severe weather, but the forecasted intensity of this system could change over the next few days. Some localized flooding may be possible on Wednesday evening. Please keep checking back with the First Alert Weather team for updates!
