Hurricane Zeta Forecast to Reach the Gulf Coast on Wednesday

Weather Update – 10:45 p.m. – Monday, October 26th

Skies have been overcast in West Tennessee since Friday night, and without any sunshine, we’ve been below 60°F since then! Our focus is mainly on the hurricane to our south which now has maximum sustained winds near 80 mph with higher gusts. Hurricane Zeta is forecast to continue north through the Yucutan Peninsula of Mexico and make landfall on the Gulf Coast on Wednesday.


Cloudy skies will continue tonight across the area with rain showers at times especially in northwest Tennessee. It’ll be chilly out there with light winds and temperatures dropping to the upper 40s and lower 50s by sunrise on Tuesday. Don’t forget to download the new WBBJ Weather app on your Android device or iPhone to stay ahead of the weather where you are!

Expect mostly cloudy skies to continue tomorrow with glimpses of sunshine later in the afternoon. Temperatures will warm up to the lower and middle 60s. There’s a slight chance for rain on Tuesday but showers and thunderstorms are more likely Wednesday and Thursday from Hurricane Zeta. Significant rainfall and gusty winds will be possible so stay tuned to WBBJ 7 Eyewitness News for the latest forecast path and impacts for that storm, and for more updates keep up with Storm Team Weather online too.
