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
A chance of showers and thunderstorms will be possible across the
eastern half of Louisiana later this afternoon. Occasional
lightning, brief heavy rain and gusty winds can be expected with
some storms. Heat indices will range from 101 to 106 this afternoon.
Tonight...a few isolated storms will continue to linger early in the
evening with warmer than normal temperatures continuing overnight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Thursday through Tuesday
Rain chances will fall significantly as upper level high pressure
strongly builds back into the area. Heat indices will range from 102
to 107 in the afternoon. Thursday night...temperature will remain
above normal with dry weather expected. No hazardous weather is
expected at this time.

For Friday into the weekend, high pressure aloft will continue to
dominate our region westward, strengthening slightly during this
time. With this, temperatures will notch further upwards, with
minimal shower and thunderstorm chances. Expecting upper 90s to
near 100 across inland Southeast Texas and Central Louisiana with
mid to upper 90s elsewhere for Friday and Saturday. This will
likely result in heat index values in the 105-110 range. Not much
change expected for the remainder of the weekend into early next
week. A chance of showers and thunderstorms possible by Tuesday
