This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central
Louisiana, south central Louisiana, southwest Louisiana, west
central Louisiana, and southeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible this
afternoon. While the overall risk of severe thunderstorms is very
low, sufficient instability and shear exist for at least isolated
strong to severe thunderstorms capable of producing hail and
strong winds. Thunderstorm activity should diminish this evening
with the loss of daytime heating.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Tuesday through Sunday

A vigorous and slow moving upper level storm system is forecast to
affect the area Wednesday and Thursday. There is a slight risk of
severe thunderstorms across East Texas into parts of Western and
Central Louisiana Wednesday and Wednesday night, and across
Central and South Central Louisiana on Thursday. All modes of
severe weather appear possible, along with a risk of locally heavy
rainfall.

Another upper level storm system will affect the region Saturday
and Sunday. Considerable variability is present in model guidance
at this time, but it appears that at least some severe weather
and/or locally heavy rainfall risk will accompany this system as
well.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Storm spotter activation is not anticipated today or tonight, but
may be requested Wednesday and Thursday.
