Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Lake Charles LA 354 PM CDT Thu Oct 1 2020

DISCUSSION. A plume of high clouds riding around the western side of an upper trof over much of the eastern U.S. has dampened the clear blue skies that have prevailed over the region over the last several days.

Temperatures have warmed into the low to mid 80s this afternoon, but with dewpoints still in the upper 40s to lower 50s conditions continue to be quite pleasant. The aforementioned trof will push a dry front through the region later this evening. The biggest change in apparent weather will be a more predominantly north wind. Modest CAA will keep afternoon highs in the 70s tomorrow with a continued abundance of sunshine.

Winds will turn easterly on Saturday as the surface high to the north begins to shift east, but this is not likely to result in any kind of appreciable increase in atmospheric moisture before another frontal boundary swings through the area late Sunday into early Monday extending the very pleasant conditions into at least the middle of next week. These fronts should also aid in warding off possible tropical development in the western Caribbean early next week.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
