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

Areas of dense fog will continue this morning along the coastal
parishes and counties where a dense fog advisory is in effect.
Fog will be more patchy across the remainder of the area.
Visibility will improve by mid morning as the fog erodes, though
it could linger near the immediate coast.

A weak front will enter the area from the west this afternoon,
then continue to progress through the area, reaching the coast by
late tonight. Scattered showers are expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Warm, humid, and breezy conditions are expected for the start of
the week. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms return
on Tuesday before increasing in coverage Wednesday into Thursday
as a slow moving/meandering frontal boundary moves across east
Texas and southwest Louisiana. Early indications are that a few of
these storms could be on the strong side.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

The potential for dense marine fog will persist through tonight
over the nearshore waters and coastal lakes and bays as warm and
moist air traverses relatively cool shelf waters. Visibilities of
less than a quarter mile will be possible in some locations. A
marine dense fog advisory is in effect through tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Conditions for marine fog formation will continue through mid
week, though modest southerly flow could help mitigate the risk of
dense fog.

Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms return on Tuesday
before increasing in coverage Wednesday into Thursday as a slow
moving/meandering frontal boundary moves across east Texas and
southwest Louisiana. Early indications are that a few of these
storms could be on the strong side.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
