Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
328 PM CDT Thu Jul 27 2017

.DISCUSSION...Today pretty much a carbon copy of yesterday.
Temperatures in the low 90s, dewpoints in the mid 70s, heat index
generally within a 100-105 range. Also seeing a few showers
ongoing over southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. Similar
pattern expected for tomorrow. Increasing rain chances on tap for
Saturday.

A deepening upper trof over the eastern CONUS will advance a
surface front across the forecast area late Saturday afternoon and
into the overnight hours. A good chance for showers and
thunderstorms can be expected with this feature as deep moisture
and lift accompanies the boundary. Front expected to punch into
the gulf waters Sunday. A dry northerly flow will follow at the
surface in the wake of the front as well as aloft between the
east CONUS trof and amplifying plains ridge. PWATS progged to
slip down to near 1 inch moving through Sunday and into Monday.
Rain chances then hold off until mid-week.

&&

.MARINE...High pressure over the northwest gulf will maintain a
light and somewhat variable flow through the remainder of the
week. A cool front will advance into the gulf waters late
Saturday into Sunday bringing a return chance for showers and
thunderstorms and followed by brief offshore flow.
