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

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday

A vigorous and slow moving upper level storm system is forecast to
affect the area Wednesday and Thursday. There is an enhanced risk
of severe thunderstorms across parts of interior East Texas into
West Central Louisiana surrounded by a slight risk along and west
of a Marksville to Jennings line Wednesday and Wednesday night.
There is a slight risk along and east of the Sabine River on
Thursday.

While uncertainty exists with the exact timing and evolution,
scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected to
develop/spread into East Texas late afternoon Wednesday, with
activity continuing to spread east into Louisiana Wednesday
evening and night. Thunderstorms are expected to continue over
Louisiana through Thursday morning before pushing across the
Atchafalaya River during the afternoon as a cold front sweeps
through the area. All modes of severe weather are possible.

Another upper level storm system will affect the region Saturday
night through Monday. 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...

through Thursday afternoon.
