    Periods of off and on rain with some thunderstorms will continue through Tuesday as more upper level disturbances cross our area.  It is important to note that it will not rain all day, and there may be long periods with no rain at all.  The next upper level disturbance is expected to cross over our area late Sunday into Monday and that means more rain and possibly some thunderstorms too.  It is expected to be warm with lows in the 60s and highs in the 70s.

    One local fraternity made sure some families in Southwest Louisiana had a fully cooked meal to enjoy for Christmas. "We have turkeys and hams, but it's enough food in the box to feed a family of eight," said  Mark Gallashaw, president of Kappa Alpha Psi's Lake Charles Alumni Chapter. Thirty-five boxes of cooked meals are getting ready to be delivered to families across Southwest Louisiana.
