AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAKE CHARLES LA
339 AM CDT FRI SEP 4 2015

.DISCUSSION...
NOT MUCH CHANGE TO THE PREVIOUS FORECAST THINKING. GENERALLY THE
REGION IS DOMINATED BY RIDGING SITUATED OVER THE CENTRAL PORTION
OF THE CONUS. AT THE SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE OVER THE NORTHEAST
GULF AND LOW PRESSURE IN THE CENTRAL PLAINS IS CAUSING A LIGHT
EAST TO SOUTHEAST FLOW THROUGH ABOUT 5KFT OR SO. SATELLITE/GPS MET
DATA INDICATES MOIST AIRMASS REMAINS ACROSS THE AREA WITH PW`S
STILL ABOVE 120 PERCENT OF NORMAL.

THUS MUCH LIKE PREVIOUS DAYS WILL SEE DIURNALLY DRIVEN ACTIVITY
WITH NOCTURNAL ACTIVITY ALREADY ONGOING IN THE COASTAL PARISHES
AND IN THE COASTAL WATERS. TODAY SHOULD BE VERY SIMILAR TO
YESTERDAY AND THIS PATTERN WILL PERSIST THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

EARLY NEXT WEEK TROUGH IS STILL FORECAST TO DEVELOP IN THE EASTERN
PORTIONS OF THE U.S. AND THEN EASE WEST WITH TIME. THIS MAY
INCREASE POPS LATE IN THE FORECAST PERIOD. TEMPERATURES WILL
CONTINUE TO BE NEAR SEASONAL VALUES.
