LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Cold start to the day with winds out of the north making it feel like the mid to upper 30s through the morning hours. We’ll see sunny skies through the day today helping us warm into the mid 60s through the afternoon. As we head into the evening hours clouds begin to increase with mostly cloudy skies overnight into Valentine’s Day.

Starting off our Thursday we’ll see cool temperatures, but thankfully not as cold as this morning. We’ll rebound into the 70s with winds out of the south. This will increase moisture meaning more cloud cover through the afternoon.

Expect the same pattern into the first half of the weekend with mostly cloudy skies Friday and Saturday with temperatures getting into the mid 70s both days.
