MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible throughout the day on Saturday, but the severe weather potential will not peak until late in the night. After 10 p.m., there will be a chance for a few severe storms to develop. Areas along and north of I-40 should closely monitor this system on Saturday night. 

These storms could produce strong winds, hail and frequent lightning. Since the severe threat will be during the overnight hours, you need to have a way to get weather information in the middle of the night. To make sure you are alerted to any warnings, download the WMC Action News 5 weather app. It's free and available to Apple and Android users.

Showers will also be possible on Sunday, but we are not anticipating any severe storms. Light rain will be likely during the afternoon and evening. 

A few lingering showers are possible early Monday morning in north Mississippi. However, rain and clouds will clear by late morning. Make plans for after 10 a.m. on Memorial Day to avoid showers.
