Winter Storm Warning for the Memphis metro

A Winter Storm Warning has been issued from noon Sunday through midnight Monday night. In addition, a Wind Chill Advisory has been issued for tonight.


Spotty areas of sleet, freezing rain, or snow are possible during the day Sunday. However, most precipitation begins by late afternoon, likely as sleet possibly mixed with some snow, and continue through the early overnight hours. A lull in precipitation is possible during the early morning hours before precipitation picks back up again Monday morning. Snow is expected Monday with some sleet possibly mixed in during the morning hours. The heaviest snow is expected from mid-morning to mid-afternoon before tapering off to flurries late afternoon into the evening. 


Up to 0.5-1.0” of sleet is expected, while 4-6” of snow is expected to top the sleet and lingering ice from Thursday’s storm.


Travel will likely become very challenging to impossible by Sunday night. With bitterly cold temperatures and dangerous wind chills also expected (lower single digits tonight and again Sunday night through Monday), the remnants of the storm are likely to linger well into next week, when another winter storm is expected Wednesday into Thursday.

More details on this third system are yet to come, but it has the potential to also be a significant storm. Details on the forecast can be found in the MWN app and here.
