Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
409 AM CDT Fri Oct 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
High pressure will move away from the area and low
pressure will move across the northern plains through the next
couple of days. This will turn the flow more on shore and
increase moisture. A few showers and storms will be possible
Today and Saturday, however the highest rain chances will be
during Sunday when a cold front will move through the region.
