A weak cold front arrives this weekend

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - For the rest of the afternoon, the sunshine will remain. There will not be any rain with the few clouds we may see. Temperatures are quite warm now. It will take until after sunset before the temperatures cool down. Try to get out and enjoy the great weather!

This evening will not be any different from perfect. There will not be any chance of rain. Even the clouds will be limited. Temperatures will still be warm and will remain in the 80s. After sunset, temperatures will cool down a little bit, but it will still be warm. It should be a great evening.

Overnight, I expect there to be almost no clouds at all! Therefore, the rain chances will be down to zero. Temperatures will be a little cool by sunrise Wednesday. Lows will be in the 60s. That is mostly because of the light winds and lack of cloud cover.

Wednesday will be another great day! There will not be any rain at all! Instead, there will be abundant sunshine. Temperatures will be warm again though. Highs will reach the mid to upper 80s. Keep those sunglasses and maybe some sunscreen if you are planning on spending time outside.

Thursday will also be a good day too. More sunshine and not many clouds are expected. The humidity will slowly be coming back by this time. Therefore with the temperature expected to rise to the mid 80s, it may feel like the lower 90s! Make sure to stay hydrated and don't be afraid to go inside to cool off for a few minutes!

Friday will bring a few changes. There will be a 20% chance of rain. Certainly not a washout by any means. There will be more clouds around and not as much sunshine, although a few peeks of sunshine will certainly take place too.

This weekend will also have a slight chance of rain. Sunday in particular will have a better chance of rain. There will be a weak Pacific cold frotn arriving this weekend bringing the rain. That front will arrive by Sunday making it the more likely day for rain. I would not cancel any plans just yet, but have an indoor plan in place just in case.

A look ahead to next week, the rain chances will be low, but still possible. There will be a 20% chance of rain everyday as of now. There will also be warm temperatures reaching the upper 80s every day. With the humidity, it will feel like the 90s.
