Will tires run out if it rains all through a F1 Grand Prix weekend?

There is plenty of talk on the number of dry condition tires and their numbers. What about for full wets and intermediate tires? If it so happens that all practise sessions, qualifying and the race itself will be driven in wet conditions - is it possible that the teams will run out of tires?

Each driver has a set of three full wet tires and four internediate tires. If it rains in all sessions, then it will be tought to complete the whole Grand Prix weekend with these limits.
