happy thanksgiving from all of us here at NWS lake charles.

Latest observations indicating steadily decreasing winds across
the area. As expected, this has allowed temperatures to drop to
near or below freezing across parts of central louisiana verifying
the freeze warning issued yesterday afternoon. While esler field
has dropped to 28 as of this writing, temperatures should quickly
rebound after sunrise. Thus the expiration time for the freeze
warning (8 am) was unchanged. Further south, along the i-10
corridor temperatures are presently in the lower 40's and still
expected to bottom out in the upper 30's around sunrise. With
winds generally 5 mph or less, some patchy frost will be possible
along and north of i-10.

The rest of thanksgiving day looks very pleasant as high pressure
begins to settle over the region yielding clear skies, light
northerly winds and afternoon highs in the low 60's. Friday will
once again start off on the chilly side with temperatures in the upper
30's along the i-10 corridor and near freezing across central
louisiana. With nearly calm winds, frost may be more widespread
than this morning. Afternoon highs will be just a few degrees
warmer as high pressure begins to shift off to the east turning
winds back out of the south by Friday afternoon.

A reinforcing, dry cold front is still progged to push through the
area late Saturday and while guidance is indicating more moisture
in the column than it was yesterday, there still isn't expected to
be enough to produce any precipitation (although there may be some
scattered clouds).

Behind the front, high pressure once again builds across the area
Sunday and Monday before skirting off to the east by Tuesday.

From here, guidance diverges somewhat with regards to the timing
of the next front. Both the euro and GFS swing a front through the
area, but the GFS does it during the day Wednesday morning while
the slower euro holds it off until Thursday morning. Plenty of
time to work out those details, but the progressive pattern of
fronts every three-ish days is expected to continue through next
week.

Now go eat some turkey and argue with your relatives.

Saturday into early Sunday.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
