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

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

A squall line will move through the area ahead of a cold front
later today through this evening. A few storms could become strong
to severe. The greatest risk locally will generally be across
areas along and north of a line from Baton Rouge to Tickfaw to
Franklinton. The risk will begin mid-day around the Atchafalya
River and will progress eastward reaching the Mississippi Coast
and far southeastern Louisiana this evening. The main threats from
any storms that do become severe will be damaging wind gusts and
large hail. However, an isolated tornado or two cannot be ruled
out.

Strengthening winds ahead of the cold front will result in hazard
conditions for small craft. Exercise caution headlines are in
effect for today and will likely be needed tonight as well.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Sunday through Friday

Moderate to strong winds in the wake of the cold front will
continue to result in hazardous conditions for small craft
through at least Monday.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Please relay any reports of severe weather today to the National
Weather Service or local law enforcement.
