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
The primary weather concern today will again be the warmth around
the region, with max heat index values running around 105 degrees.
Although a heat advisory is not in effect today, precautions
against heat-related illness should be maintained.

Widely scattered mainly afternoon thunderstorms are expected over
much of the forecast area. Frequent lightning and brief heavy
rains will be the main concerns.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday
Rain chances will gradually increase through the coming week as a
low pressure area aloft pushes westward across the Gulf of Mexico.
Severe weather is not expected.

Spotter activation will not be needed.
