DISCUSSION AND OUTLOOK

At 400 AM CDT (0900 UTC), the center of Tropical Depression Laura
was located near latitude 35.8 North, longitude 91.5 West. The
depression is moving toward the northeast near 13 mph (20 km/h) and
this motion is expected to become east-northeasterly during the day 
on Friday, with some acceleration expected Saturday and Sunday.

Maximum sustained winds are near 30 mph (45 km/h) with higher 
gusts.  Little change in strength is expected on Friday, with 
strengthening expected late Saturday into Sunday as Laura moves 
into the northwest Atlantic.

The estimated minimum central pressure is 998 mb (29.47 inches).


HAZARDS AFFECTING LAND
----------------------
RAINFALL: Through tonight, Laura is expected to produce the
following additional rainfall totals:

Northeastern Arkansas, northern Mississippi, northern Alabama,
western and Middle Tennessee, southeastern Missouri, western and
central Kentucky: 1 to 3 inches, with isolated totals of 5 inches.

Southern Louisiana, southern Mississippi, and southern Alabama: 1
to 2 inches, with isolated totals of 4 inches.

This rainfall will continue to cause isolated flash and urban
flooding, small streams and creeks to overflow their banks, and
minor to moderate river flooding.

On Saturday, Laura is expected to produce 1 to 2 inches with
isolated maximum amounts of 3 inches across portions of the
central and southern Appalachians, and the Mid-Atlantic States.
This rainfall may lead to flash and urban flooding and rapid rises
on small streams.

TORNADOES:  The threat for a few tornadoes is expected to
redevelop this afternoon into the evening across parts of the
Mid-South and Tennessee Valley regions.

SURF:  Swells produced by Laura continue to affect the
north-central and northeast Gulf Coast.  These swells are likely
to cause life-threatening surf and rip current conditions.  Please
consult products from your local weather office.
