This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of central
Louisiana, south central Louisiana, southwest Louisiana, west
central Louisiana, and southeast Texas.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

A strong cold front is expected to move through the region on
Monday. Much of the area has been highlighted in a slight to
enhanced risk for severe weather during this time frame. Any
supercells that can remain discrete ahead of the front will have
the potential for tornadoes, hail, and damaging wind gusts. With
frontal passage, more of a line of storms is expected, with
damaging wind gusts and spin-up tornadoes as possible threats. As
for timing, the general consensus is storm chances increasing by
Monday late morning and early afternoon in the pre-frontal
environment, with frontal passage through the afternoon and into
the evening. In addition, periods of moderate rain will be
possible. Currently the expectation is for around 1 inch of rain
with some locally higher amounts possible.

Drier and colder weather expected behind the front. Lows Tuesday
morning will be in the 30s/40s, and even colder the following
days, with lows near or slightly below freezing along and north of
the I-10 corridor Wed/Thu morning. Temperatures begin to warm some
by Friday/Saturday with low end precipitation chances as another
weak system moves through the area.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation may be possible on Monday.

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of the Gulf of
Mexico and the coastal lakes and bays of the Gulf of Mexico.

.DAY ONE...Tonight

No hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Monday through Saturday

Moderate onshore flow persists until the passage of a cold front
on Monday. Thunderstorm chances increase Monday ahead of the
front, with a few strong storms possible. Rain chances diminish
behind the front with a moderate to strong offshore flow developing.
Small Craft Advisory and a Gale watch has been issued for Monday
night into Tuesday.

Strong winds will taper off by midweek becoming lighter as
surface high pressure becomes more centered over the region for
the remainder of the work week. Winds turn a little more onshore
by the end of the work week with low end rain chances as another
system moves through the region. Drier and cooler weather then
expected for the weekend with high pressure building in.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated at this time.
