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
A cold front will stall near interior southeast Texas and central
Louisiana later today. This front will be the focus for the
possibility of locally heavy rainfall into Thursday. Rainfall
amounts northeast of a Marksville to Beaumont line will average 1
to 2 inches with locally higher amounts likely. These rainfall
amounts may cause some street flooding and ponding of water in low
lying areas. Occasional cloud to ground lightning will also be
possible with the storms over the entire area. A storm or two,
primarily over the Lakes Region of Texas as well as west-central
Louisiana, could be severe this afternoon and tonight with
damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday
The cold front will eventually move into the forecast area over
the weekend, bringing with it another round of showers and a few
thunderstorms. Brief heavy rainfall and occasional cloud to ground
lightning will be the main hazards.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed.
