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 rainfall is expected through tonight, although warmer and
increasingly muggy conditions are expected as southerly flow off
the Gulf behind departing high pressure lingers.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday
A cold front will advance across the forecast area Wednesday
night. A chance for pre-frontal showers and thunderstorms can be
expected Wednesday, with chances increasing through the overnight
hours along and just ahead of the boundary. Sufficient moisture,
instability and shear will be in place to result in the
possibility of severe thunderstorm development including damaging
winds and hail, as well as isolated tornadoes.

After dry weather for Thursday, a few showers look possible for
the daytime hours on Friday as moisture begins to increase ahead
of our next storm system. Showers and storms will increase through
the weekend, with at least a slim chance for severe weather again
Saturday night and Sunday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation may be required Wednesday and Sunday.
