Another round of heavy rain beginning on Thursday will once again put Texas under the threat of flash flooding. Will any other state in the community see the same risks? Read on for all of the details of this potentially precarious situation.

Widespread Rainfall to Impact Texas and the Southern U.S.

More moisture is headed to the zone between the Interstate 10 and 20 corridors stretching from Texas and into Florida. Some of the hardest-hit communities will be under the gun for life-threatening flash flooding as waterways in the region continue to rise.

Widespread rainfall amounts of 4 to 8 inches are in the forecast for an area from northeastern Texas and into central and southern Alabama. This heavy amount of moisture may also creep as far south as northern Florida into the weekend. The weather maker will also bring the chance of severe thunderstorms to the impacted region.

It has been an exceptionally wet stretch of weeks for much of the southern U.S. A new storm is set to fire up across the nation's heartland on Thursday, bringing up immense moisture from the Gulf of Mexico along the way. The slow-moving nature of this system will heighten the risk of localized heavy rain and its resulting flooding.

The forecast is predicting that at least seven states will pick up rainfall between 2 to 4 inches in a period of a few days. Rainfall between 4 to 8 inches is a possibility on a more localized level.
