AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAKE CHARLES LA
413 AM CDT THU JUL 24 2014

.DISCUSSION...AMPLE MOISTURE REMAINS OVER THE REGION THIS MORNING
WHILE AN UPPER DISTURBANCE CONTINUES TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN OVER
ACADIANA. UNDER THE DISTURBANCE A FEW LIGHT SHOWERS HAVE BEEN
NOTED NORTH OF THE CWA WHILE LIGHT RAIN/SPRINKLES HAVE RECENTLY
REDEVELOPED OVER THE COASTAL WATERS AND CAMERON PARISH. WITH THE
AFOREMENTIONED CONDITIONS IN PLACE AND POTENTIALLY A LEFT OVER
OUTFLOW BOUNDARY OR TWO ACROSS THE AREA FROM THE EARLIER MCS FROM
NORTH LA, SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS MAY DEVELOP EARLIER
TODAY AND LAST THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AS TEMPS WARM.

FRI THROUGH THE WEEKEND... A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE IN THE UPPER
LVLS WILL BUILD ACROSS THE REGION FROM THE WEST WHILE THE BERMUDA HIGH
GRADUALLY NUDGES IN FROM THE EAST. THIS WILL SUPPRESS POPS THROUGH
THE WEEKEND WHILE INCREASING TEMPS SOMEWHAT... EXCEPT FROM ALONG
THE COAST WHERE THE SOUTH FLOW OFF THE GULF WILL KEEP TEMPS A FEW
DEGREES "COOLER". HEAT INDICES WILL CLIMB INTO THE 100 TO 105
RANGE ALONG A LARGE PORTION OF THE AREA FROM THE I-10 CORRIDOR
NORTHWARD.

NEXT WEEK... A DEEP TROUGH IS EXPECTED TO DIG INTO THE EASTERN
PORTIONS OF THE COUNTRY WEAKENING THE UPPER LVL RIDGE LOCALLY.
THIS MAY SEND A COLD FRONT INTO THE SE STATES POTENTIALLY DRIFTING
INTO THE AREA BY TUE. ANY LOWER TEMPS OR DEW POINTS ARE
QUESTIONABLE AT THIS TIME, HOWEVER RAIN CHANCES AND CLOUD COVER
WILL INCREASE THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK AS THE BOUNDARY REMAINS IN
THE VICINITY.


&&

.MARINE...OUTSIDE OF THUNDERSTORMS WINDS WILL BE LIGHT AND
SOMEWHAT VARIABLE TODAY, HOWEVER HIGH PRESSURE WILL BECOME MORE
ESTABLISHED BY FRIDAY INCREASING THE MORE TYPICAL SOUTH FLOW THAT
WILL REMAIN IN PLACE THROUGH THE WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK.
