Cool blast arriving tonight

Posted: Updated:
LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) -

Some pesky showers lingered through parts of southwest Louisiana along the backside of an upper level trough of low pressure exiting to our northeast this morning.  Some remnant cloud cover is still left behind the low pressure area resulting in overcast and cool conditions during the morning hours.

The real cooler weather will not be moving in until later tonight as the Canadian cold front, currently located over Texas, slides through the area this evening. 

I do not expect much, if any rain to accompany this next frontal passage.  The most we will see is just a few sprinkles later this afternoon ahead of its arrival.

The moisture content in the air will quickly drop behind the front allowing overnight lows to dip into 50s and 60s across parts of the area.  This will bring the coolest air so far this season with a real taste of fall these next several days.

Tomorrow is shaping up to be a fantastic weather day with sunshine returning and highs in the low 80s with low humidity.

We'll see another front arrive by the weekend.  At this time rain looks unlikely but another reinforcing shot of cooler air will accompany its passage in the longer range forecast.
