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

.DAY ONE...Tonight
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to work slowly
northward across the area early this evening and dissipate with
loss of daytime heating. Gusty winds and frequent lightning will
accompany the stronger storms.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected again Friday,
mainly during the afternoon and evening. Widespread severe
thunderstorms are not expected, although some storms could produce
gusty winds along with frequent cloud to ground lightning and
very heavy rainfall.

Weather conditions Saturday through the middle of next week will
be highly dependent on the evolution and track of a low pressure
area moving north through the Gulf of Mexico. At this time it
appears the low will track east of the area, keeping the bulk of
heavy rainfall across the north central or northeast Gulf coast.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will still be possible, with
stronger storms producing gusty winds along with frequent cloud to
ground lightning and very heavy rainfall.

Please continue to closely monitor the forecast for the weekend
into early next week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation is not anticipated.
