Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
346 AM CST Wed Dec 13 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure moving across the northern gulf today will
shift winds from out of the north this morning to out
of the southwest by this afternoon beneath increasing
cloud cover. RH values will reach a minimum late this morning
in the lower 30`s across east Texas and central Louisiana
and lower 40`s along and south of the I-10 corridor before
moisture begins to increase on the southerly winds.

Generally light southerly winds will continue Thursday. A
cold front will push through the region Thursday night into
early Friday bringing low end rain chances and turning winds
back out of the north. This front will quickly recede back to
the north as a warm front Saturday as a surface low develops across the
western gulf increasing rain chances for much of the weekend.
