Hazardous Weather Outlook For ASSUMPTION County, LA

816 PM CDT Tue May 22 2018

 DAY ONE  Tonight

Isolated thunderstorms will linger through the late evening hours
mainly north of I-10 and west of I-55 in Southeast Louisiana.
Occasional lightning strikes and locally heavy downpours will be
the primary threat from these thunderstorms. Most of the
thunderstorm activity should dissipate by midnight. 

 DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN  Wednesday through Monday

Scattered thunderstorms are possible each day  mainly in the
afternoon hours. Widespread severe weather is not expected 
however an isolated strong to severe storm is possible. Main 
concern will be gusty winds, brief heavy rain, and occasional 
lightning. Waterspouts and tropical funnels will be possible in 
marine areas as the storms develop in the morning hours. 

Going into the Memorial Day Weekend, the overall weather pattern 
would favor the potential for heavy rainfall and possible flood 
threat 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 Wednesday, but may
be needed for flood monitoring later in the week.
