Thunderstorms are developing all around the Metro Baton Rouge area this morning ahead of a squall line that is forming over Eastern Texas.  The squall line is moving to the southeast and could produce damaging winds around 60 mph when it gets to Baton Rouge later this afternoon.  Storms that are popping up around Baton Rouge have the potential to be severe with large hail and damaging winds along with heavy rain.
