Hazardous Weather Outlook For EAST BATON ROUGE County, LA

544 PM CDT Mon May 21 2018

 DAY ONE  Tonight

Isolated thunderstorms over the area will come to an end by late
this evening. Occasional lightning strikes and brief downpours can
be expected from these isolated thunderstorms. 

 DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN  Tuesday through Sunday

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. 

From Wednesday onward 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
