MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - We are watching Tropical Storm Delta as it is likely to have impacts along the Gulf Coast by the end of the week. It is way to early to say what the exact path and or impacts on Mid-South. At this point we need to be watchful and continue to monitor.

The storm reached tropical storm strength early today and could strengthen to a hurricane by the end of the week. In the meantime, the system will bring rain to parts of Jamaica and Cuba. It will track into the Gulf of Mexico by midweek. National Hurricane Center’s latest projection shows it strengthening to a category 2 before possible landfall along the Gulf Coast but this could change.

Impacts for us will depend on where it tracks after landfall. At this point models are showing a few showers to widespread heavy rain.
