Louisiana, south central Louisiana, southwest Louisiana, west
central Louisiana, and southeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Very warm and humid conditions can be expected with afternoon heat
index values between 100 and 106 degrees. Individuals are
encouraged to take precautions to minimize heat-related illnesses
if outside for any prolonged period of time.

Otherwise, isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms can be
expected, with the best chances expected along and south of the
I-10 corridor from Lake Charles to Lafayette. Occasional cloud to
ground lightning and very heavy rainfall will be the primary
hazards with any thunderstorms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Showers and thunderstorms will increase Saturday and Sunday as an
upper low moves over the region. Storms will be capable of
producing frequent cloud to ground lightning, brief gusty winds
along with very heavy rainfall that could result in localized
flooding of urban and poor drainage areas.

Rain chances will decrease early next week as high pressure begins
to build back over the region.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
