This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of Southeast
Louisiana...South Mississippi and the adjacent coastal waters.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A slight risk of severe thunderstorms remains over the area today.
The strongest activity should be located along and south of a line
from Picayune Mississippi to Gonzalez Louisiana. This risk will be
alleviated as the back side of the line of thunderstorms moves

A line of thunderstorms will move very slowly eastward today
causing training of heavy rain for the same locations. This could
lead to flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas.

A small craft advisory for a large portion of the coastal waters
will start at 1 pm today and end offshore by midnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Strong southeast winds are expected to begin affecting the coastal
waters as well as inland areas Saturday with the strongest wind
speeds expected Sunday. This may lead to wind advisories for some
land areas and small craft advisories or gale conditions for
marine areas.

Minor coastal flooding will be possible Saturday and Sunday. Tides
are expected to rise to 1 to 2 feet above normal during the same
time as spring tides. Areas normally prone to minor coastal
flooding should observe the highest water conditions during times
of high tide which will occur around and after noon each day.

Strong and severe thunderstorms are expected again Sunday into
Monday morning. All modes of severity are expected with this
system. Areas of heavy rainfall may be associated with this system
as well leading to the possibility of localized flash flooding.


Spotter activation will be possible Sunday into early Monday.
