Storms arrive between 6-9 a.m. on Thursday

(KNOE 8 WEATHER) - I hope your Christmas went well! Now that the holiday is over we're focusing on our next storm system set to arrive Thursday morning.

Here's how things are going to evolve.

An upper-level low situated near the southwest part of the Country will strengthen into a surface low tonight. A cold front will form behind a warm/moist airmass.

A squall line will form in Texas and move from west to east.

Tonight severe storms can be expected in Texas where good instability will favor damaging winds, hail, and tornadoes.

Here in the Bayou state, the storms will arrive by 6-9 a.m. Thursday. The biggest threat will be damaging winds embedded within the leading edge of the squall line.

Flooding could also be a threat as well. We're not going to get a lot of rain, but the rain that we do get will occur within a short period of time which could clog up a few storm drains.

We get rewarded with dry weather on Friday.
