LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - The 4th of July Fishing Tournament, slated by the Southwest Louisiana Fishing Club, has been postponed due to the possibility of severe weather in the Gulf of Mexico, according to the club.

The tournament is reset for July 19-21.

"Our professional weather advisors are predicting numerous severe thunderstorms with dangerous lightning over the weekend," a release from the club states.

"Also, a low pressure (disturbance # 10) is moving north directly for our coast on Sunday bringing high winds and rough seas from Venice to Cameron," it continues.
