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

There is a slight to enhanced risk of severe thunderstorms today
and tonight. While uncertainty exists with the exact timing and
evolution, scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected to
develop or spread into East Texas this afternoon, with activity
continuing to spread east into Louisiana tonight. All modes of
severe weather are possible, which includes tornadoes, damaging
winds, and large hail.

South winds are forecast to increase and become gusty this
afternoon across areas generally along and south of I-10 and over
parts of East Central Louisiana. A wind Advisory is in effect for
these areas from noon through 6 pm, and may need to be extended
further in time for areas near the coast.

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

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

Thunderstorms are expected to continue over East Central and
South Central Louisiana early Thursday morning before pushing
across the Atchafalaya River as a cold front sweeps through the
area. Severe weather will continue to be possible with this
activity.

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