DISCUSSION...
The cold front is still moving SE this afternoon with still the
SE quarter or so of our area to work over. Some showers extend
from Choudrant to Chatham, which may be just a bit behind the
surface boundary entering Ouachita parish now. Also from
Natchitoches down to Lufkin upper sixty dew points will quickly
be replaced by 50s this late afternoon and 40s as the sky loosen
up tonight.

Fall is going to actually hang around for a bit to start the week
and a little below averages for mid October. Dry weather will
linger, but the models still eventually retrograde an upper low
now out over the Gulf moving East by late week and then work
inland around the upper ridge hanging over the SE U.S. This could
bring some much needed rain to mainly LA, but depending on track
perhaps more elsewhere. We will also see another front this time
next week. So maybe looking up all around in the days to come.
