The cold front won’t actually begin producing rain until it reaches the ArkLaTex. As of now, the forecast for seeing a few strong storms will depend on the timing of the front and when storms begin to pop. Many models show thunderstorms actually developing south of Interstate 20. It is not clear if some of those storms could be strong to severe. SPC has outlined Deep East Texas and Northwest Louisiana under a Marginal Risk. After sunset, the rain and storms will come to an end.

Marginal Risk

Then, the story will become the big chill down for Christmas Eve. The arctic front will drop temperatures into the 30s Thursday morning. With a gusty northwest wind, many of us will see temperatures only in the 40s. Christmas Day is looking great and sunny. A warm-up is expected as we head towards the weekend.
