This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of Gulf of Mexico.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight

Areas of dense sea fog, still present over the nearshore waters
west of Sabine Pass, are expected to expand eastward this evening
into the waters west of Intracoastal City, with some of this fog
pushing inland into at least the southern parts of Sabine and
Calcasieu Lakes. A dense fog advisory is in effect for these areas
for tonight through Saturday morning. Patchy or areas of fog are
possible elsewhere.

South winds are expected to increase tonight, especially over the
waters beyond 20 nm after midnight. A small craft exercise caution
headline may be needed.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Areas of dense marine fog will linger into Saturday morning over
the nearshore Gulf waters, with increasing south winds and daytime
heating eroding the fog by midday. A cold front is expected to
push into the area Saturday night, accompanied by considerable
shower and thunderstorm activity which will continue through
Sunday as it stalls over the near shore waters. Enhanced rain
chances return again for mid-week when another front is expected
to move into the coastal waters.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
