Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
337 PM CDT TUE SEP 27 2016

.DISCUSSION...Satellite/surface obs showing scattered to broken
altostratus over the area. Lower cu field noted over lower
Acadiana where dewpoints have recovered into the low 70s and where
radar is showing development of a few showers. Across the rest of
the forecast area lower dewpoints are now in place ranging from
the mid 60s over central Louisiana into interior southeast Texas,
and the upper 60s further south.

Fair weather pattern expected through the week as drier air and
cooler temperatures continue to settle over the region. Great
Lakes mid/upper low progged similarly by models to settle south
southeast into the Ohio valley during the latter part of the work-
week, ejecting northeast through the weekend. With cyclone
settling south, looking for a reinforcing cool/dry front to move
across the forecast area Thursday with the coolest temperatures
thus far in the season then arriving.

&&

.MARINE...A northerly flow can be expected over the gulf waters
through the week in the wake of todays frontal passage, with a
reinforcing cold front moving through Thursday. A few showers and
thunderstorms will remain possible tonight and Wednesday.
