...WIND ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 1 AM CST WEDNESDAY...

This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for north central Louisiana and
northwest Louisiana.

.DAY ONE...Today and tonight.

Strong and gusty southwest winds are expected today and into early
Wednesday morning across portions of Northwest and North Central
Louisiana. Sustained wind speeds of 20 to 30 mph with gusts near 40
mph are possible at times. Therefore, a Wind Advisory is in effect
until 1 AM CST Wednesday morning.

Despite higher relative humidity values, the strong winds will
combine with critically dry fuels and ongoing drought conditions to
create elevated fire weather conditions across Louisiana today. These
conditions will support the spread of wildfires. Outdoor burning and
activities that involve open sparks or flames are discouraged. Please
report all wildfires to local law enforcement as soon as possible.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Wednesday through Monday.

Strong and gusty winds will continue into Wednesday after a cold
front moves across the region. Wind speeds should finally diminish
late Wednesday afternoon and evening.

Isolated to widely scattered thunderstorms will be possible late
Thursday through Saturday. Scattered thunderstorms will be possible
again late Sunday and into Monday. The strongest storms could
produce gusty winds and brief heavy rainfall. Severe weather is not
expected at this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
