DISCUSSION...
Another warm and muggy start to the day as temperatures are
ranging from the upper 70s to lower 80s along the coast to
the mid 70s across central Louisiana. Warm temperatures have
made their way as far north as the central US where St Louis
has the same temp as Lake Charles "78 degrees". The good news
is we are more than have way thru summer... the bad news is
the we have not reached our the normal max temps for this area.
That will come in early August with temps dropping a bit towards
late August.

In the meantime a weakness aloft over the northern gulf will
drift from east to west over the next several days. This will
gradually increase our chances for afternoon storms which in
turn should help to cool se Tx and srn La a bit. But aftn temps
will climb into the 90s with the heat index again above the
century mark. Remember to drink plenty of water and take breaks
from the heat. The tropic`s remain quiet.
