Thunderstorms are very common in the ArkLaTex.

And they are no stranger to Shreveport-Bossier City.

But how do they form?

It all has to do with air, which seems simple enough.

Thunderstorms form along a cold front, the boundary between a mass of warm air and a cold air mass.

Other factors are moisture in the atmosphere as well as sunshine throughout the day, which fuels the storms and makes the atmosphere unstable.
