URGENT - MARINE WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA

fog over the near shore waters through Monday morning. This sea
fog will also move into the coastal lakes and bays. The sea fog

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of south central
Arkansas, southwest Arkansas, north central Louisiana, northwest
Louisiana, southeast Oklahoma, east Texas and northeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...This Afternoon and Tonight...

Light rain with embedded showers along and near Interstate 20
will continue to lift North with additional development
expected to the North across East and Northeast Texas, Southwest
and South Central Arkansas and Southeast Oklahoma. A nearly
stationary frontal system near the Gulf Coast will lift North
as a warm front and into surface low pressure over parts of
South Central and North Central Texas. No hazardous weather is
expected.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday...

Persistent Southwest flow aloft will remain over the
four State Region providing additional moisture and
disturbances, resulting in an unsettled and wet weather pattern
well into the upcoming week. Milder temperatures will return
into the early part of the week in wake of a surface warm front.
Heavy rainfall is expected by Tuesday and Wednesday as a cold
front becomes a focus for thunderstorms over the area. Later in
the week, showers and isolated thunderstorms will remain possible.
The heavy rainfall that will be possible toward the mid week
will be a concern as saturated soils will provide more rapid
water runoff into the area lakes, rivers and streams. No
organized hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Activation of emergency management personnel...amateur radio
operators...and storm spotters will not be needed through tonight.
