MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - I don’t know about you but I am ready for sunshine. It’s be overcast since Friday but who’s tracking. The problem is we are going to have to wait a little while longer before we see the sun again. In fact, it is going to get wetter before it gets better. Let’s review the timeline:

  • Tonight rain will move in late and you may even hear thunder. Rain will be heavy for some.

By the time we reach the Wednesday morning commute the heaviest rain looks to shift east.

Rain will continue off and on through Wednesday.

And then there is Thursday...

Rain will likely impact the Thursday morning commute and it’s not just the rain, its the tttt.. temperatures (my attempt at shivering while saying temperatures). Temperatures will be in the 40s Thursday morning and even when the rain moves out, by Thursday afternoon we will remain in the 40s! Brrrr!

  • An isolated strong or severe storm possible but widespread severe weather is not expected
  • Gusty northwest winds on Thursday. Damage threat is minimal at best because wind speeds are expected to stay below 40 mph. A few downed limbs are possible and plenty of leaves blowing around.
