FIRST ALERT FORECAST: Additional scattered showers remain in the forecast through Saturday morning
LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) - Most of the showers have moved out of Southwest Louisiana as of midnight. Look for lows to fall into the lower 40s overnight with lingering clouds.
Clouds linger into Saturday with a few spotty showers during the morning hours with decreasing rain chances through the afternoon. Highs tomorrow warm a little more, closer to 60 by afternoon. Sunday will certainly be the better of our two weekend days with highs in the lower 60s under partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies.
We’ll start off the workweek with some increasing clouds Monday but with a steady warm-up as highs top out in the upper 60s on Monday and into the lower 70s by Tuesday ahead of our next cold front. A few showers will accompany this front Tuesday into Wednesday with temperatures taking a plunge for the latter half of next week.
Lingering rains into Thursday with temperatures falling into the 40s will make for another raw day for late next week. Considerable model disagreement in the long range with regards to the power of an arctic airmass leads to a lot of uncertainty in the forecast beyond the middle of next week. As of now, our forecast calls for colder temperatures to begin arriving by next Friday and through the upcoming weekend and as of now no significant threat of any wintry weather for our area. That could change and most likely will over the days ahead so stay tuned for updates to the forecast.
