Fire Weather Planning Forecast
National Weather Service Lake Charles LA
359 AM CDT Fri Apr 28 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Strong and gusty winds will develop today in advance of a
slowly approaching cold front. These winds will continue
Saturday and Sunday until the front moves through the area.
While a few isolated showers or thunderstorms are possible today,
precipitation chances increase significantly Saturday and even moreso
Sunday with the frontal passage. Some storms will have the potential
to be strong to severe Sunday. Behind the front, cooler and drier air
will filter into the region Monday with return flow and increasing moisture
expected on Tuesday.
