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.
