Over 6 inches of rain may be dumped across the South beginning late Friday and lasting through Saturday as an intense weather maker chugs through the region.

Unfortunately for those residents that are already tired of this active weather pattern, the trend is forecast to continue next week.

Here are the details of this unsettled weather forecast.

Storms Already Erupting Across South-Central U.S.

Thunderstorms are expected to fire up late Friday across the southern U.S., ushering in flooding concerns, straight-line winds, and the chance of tornadoes. The storm cells will pack significant amounts of moisture.

The zone located between Interstate 10 and Interstate 20 from Louisiana through Georgia is likely to see the worst of the storm activity. Some isolated areas could pick up rainfall amounts of up to 9 inches by the time that the storms ease.

The rain showers and thunderstorms first got going Friday morning in eastern Texas. This line of storms is going to inch to the east into western portions of Alabama through Saturday.

Forecasters are warning that the thunderstorms will be intense with a good chance of straight-line winds. These winds could trigger power outages and tree damage.
