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

.DAY ONE...Tonight

Isolated evening thunderstorms are expected to diminish well
before midnight. A couple thunderstorms may produce occasional
lightning, gusty winds and brief heavy rainfall.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday

The biggest hazard on Thursday is the heat with very little in the
way of rain expected. A heat advisory is in effect from 9 am to 7
pm Thursday for heat index readings rising into the 105 to 110
degree range. Thunderstorms are expected to be rather isolated on
Thursday afternoon, however any storms that develop will have the
potential to become marginally severe with possible damaging
winds.

Shower and thunderstorm chances are expected to increase over
northern areas on Friday leading to more numerous showers and
thunderstorms again over the weekend. A few of the storms each
day could become strong, producing gusty winds, frequent lightning
and heavy downpours that could result in localized street
flooding. A diminishing trend in areal coverage of thunderstorms
is expected for early next week with the more typical, scattered
mostly afternoon thunderstorms expected.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated.
