LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) -
High pressure builds in tonight and that will last through Tuesday, which will keep the sunshine in place and allow us to warm for the afternoons and we will look at temperatures around or just slightly above average with highs in the middle to upper 60′s. Lows will be back into the lower 40′s for both Monday and Tuesday morning, and then we will watch for changes as we head into Wednesday as our next front approaches and that will bring moisture back as well as our rain chances for Wednesday afternoon and into early Thursday morning.
Looking at the weather heading into Christmas Eve we see the front departing the region, which looks to bring back sunshine for Thursday afternoon, but that’s not before we see a drop in temperatures as we see highs back into the middle 50′s for Thursday.
For those waking up early on Christmas grab that heavier coast as we start in the lower and middle 30′s and only manage to reach the lower 50′s under mostly sunny skies. We will continue to monitor the Christmas forecast as we get closer, but enjoy the rest of your evening and have an amazing Sunday!
