This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for portions of Southeast
Louisiana...South Mississippi and the adjacent coastal waters.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Scattered thunderstorms are expected today. There is a potential
for isolated strong to severe storms with gusty winds, brief
heavy rain, and occasional lightning as the main concerns.
Waterspouts and tropical funnels will be possible in marine areas
as the storms develop in the morning hours.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Scattered thunderstorms are expected again on Friday. There is a
potential for isolated strong to severe storms with gusty winds,
brief heavy rain, and occasional lightning as the main concerns.
Waterspouts and tropical funnels will be possible in marine areas
as the storms develop in the morning hours.

Over the Memorial Day Weekend, the overall weather pattern would
favor the potential for heavy rainfall and possible flooding
due to an abundance of tropical moisture. There is a high degree
of uncertainty on location and timing at this time. All interests
should pay close attention to the weather developments throughout
the week.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated through Friday, but may be
needed for flood monitoring over the weekend into early next

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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight.

Scattered thunderstorms are expected today. A brief period of heavy
rain and frequent lightning will be the main threats.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday.

Weather conditions Friday through the early 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 to perhaps numerous 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 expected at this time.
