Areas affected...coastal Louisiana

Concerning...Severe potential...Watch unlikely 

Valid 250756Z - 251000Z

Probability of Watch Issuance...5 percent

SUMMARY...A marginal risk for locally strong wind gusts and perhaps
a brief tornado will exist next few hours over a portion of coastal
Louisiana. However the threat is expected to remain too limited for
a WW issuance.

DISCUSSION...A cluster of storms continues developing over the
northwest Gulf within a low-level warm advection regime and in
association with ascent attending a vorticity maximum embedded
within the base of a progressive shortwave trough. A warm front
persists in vicinity of the LA coast, and this boundary may move a
little farther inland this morning. The largest 0-1 km hodographs
remain just north of this front where the surface layer is more
stable. While general trend has been for storms to become less
organized as they approach the coast due to limited buoyancy, some
updraft rotation continues to be observed offshore, and there is
some concern that a couple of storms could pose at least a marginal
risk for a brief tornado as they interact with the warm front. Due
to the very limited inland extent and marginal nature of the threat,
a WW is not anticipated.
