Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
349 AM CST Thu Nov 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will settle over the region today resulting
in clear skies and light northerly winds. The drier air
that continues to advect into the region in the wake of
yesterday`s cold front will result in RH values this
afternoon dropping into the upper 20s to lower 30s.
Very similar conditions will prevail once again on Friday
before winds turn back out of the south bringing slightly
higher moisture Saturday in advance of the next frontal
system which will move through the area late Saturday
night or early Sunday morning.
