THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTHEAST
LOUISIANA...SOUTH MISSISSIPPI AND THE ADJACENT COASTAL WATERS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

HAZARDOUS WEATHER IS NOT ANTICIPATED AT THIS TIME.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

A SYSTEM WILL WORK ACROSS THE LOWER MISSISSIPPI VALLEY AND
NORTHERN GULF COAST STATES FRIDAY THROUGH SATURDAY MORNING.
THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT ALONG AND
AHEAD OF A COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE. A FEW OF THESE STORMS COULD BE
STRONG TO SEVERE HOWEVER AT THIS TIME THE THREAT OF SEVERE
WEATHER APPEARS LOW DUE TO THE SURFACE LOW MOVING MOSTLY ALONG
THE COAST. ANY LITTLE SHIFT NORTH OR SOUTH WILL HAVE SIGNIFICANT
IMPACTS ON SEVERE POTENTIAL. A FURTHER NORTH TRACK WOULD INCREASE
THE RISK WHERE AS A FURTHER SOUTH TRACK ACROSS THE NORTHERN GULF
WOULD ALL BUT ELIMINATE THE POTENTIAL FOR SEVERE WEATHER.

THIS SYSTEM WILL ALSO BRING ABOUT MODERATE TO STRONG WINDS ACROSS
THE COASTAL WATERS BEGINNING FRIDAY. SOUTHERLY WINDS OF 15 TO 20
KNOTS WITH HIGHER GUSTS WILL BE POSSIBLE FRIDAY AND FRIDAY NIGHT
UNTIL FRONTAL PASSAGE THEN WINDS SHOULD QUICKLY SHIFT TO THE
NORTHWEST. SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES MAY BE NEEDED.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

THE ACTIVATION OF STORM SPOTTERS...HAM RADIO OPERATORS...AND
EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL IN SUPPORT OF SEVERE WEATHER
OPERATIONS MAY BE NEEDED FRIDAY AFTERNOON AND NIGHT.
