The system has moved onto the Louisiana coast near Lake Charles. It is expected to track near the Texas-Louisiana state line, before moving northeast into the upper Tennessee Valley by Friday afternoon.

Central and western Louisiana may experience locally heavy downpours, lightning and unpredictable winds.

The trails will reopen whenever they may be used safely.
