AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LAKE CHARLES LA
210 PM CST FRI NOV 28 2014

.DISCUSSION...
AFTERNOON TEMPERATURES PRETTY MUCH AS ADVERTISED WITH LOTS OF SUNSHINE.
SOUTHERLY WINDS HAVE BEEN GENERALLY VERY RELAXED ACROSS LOUISIANA...
HOWEVER...ACROSS SOUTHEAST TEXAS...THERE HAVE BEEN A FEW REPORTS
OF BRIEF WIND GUSTS ALONG THE I-10 CORRIDOR.

THIS WARMUP IS EXPECTED TO CONTINUE INTO SUNDAY AFTERNOON AS THE REGION
IS SANDWICHED BETWEEN HIGH PRESSURE TO THE EAST AND LOW PRESSURE
TO THE NORTHWEST. MOISTURE WILL BE SLOW TO BE VERTICALLY
INTEGRATED INTO THE ATMOSPHERIC COLUMN AS THE FLOW WILL BE ON THE
WEAKER SIDE.

RAIN CHANCES WILL RETURN EARLY ON MONDAY AS A COOL FRONT APPROACHES
THE AREA. SPOTTY LIGHT RAIN WILL HANG IN THE AREA MONDAY NIGHT
INTO EARLY TUESDAY AS THE COLD FRONT PUSHES OFFSHORE. THIS WEATHER SYSTEM
WILL BE SOMEWHAT WEAK AND DISPLACED TOO FAR NORTH...SO WE DO NOT
EXPECT PROLONGED COOL WEATHER OR HEAVY RAINS. IN FACT...SOUTHERLY
FLOW RETURNS THE FOLLOWING DAY OR NEXT WEDNESDAY. FROM THEN ON...A
SERIES OF WEAK DISTURBANCES IN A MOSTLY ZONAL FLOW WILL RESULT IN
SPOTTY LOW PROBABILITY OF PRECIPITATION DAYS THURSDAY AND
ESPECIALLY ON FRIDAY WITH ANOTHER FRONTAL PASSAGE.

FOR THE MOST PART...DO NOT SEE ANY HEAVY RAINS THROUGH THE 7 DAY
FORECAST...NOR DO I SEE ANY LENGTHY COLD SPELLS. IN FACT...FOR THE
MOST PART...WE SHOULD SEE WARMER THAN NORMAL HIGHS AND LOWS AS A
GENERAL RULE.

&&

.MARINE...
ONSHORE FLOW WILL BE SLOW TO INCREASE THROUGH SATURDAY AND THEN WILL
LIKELY STEADY OFF SOME SUNDAY AND MONDAY AS THE NEXT COLD FRONT
APPROACHES THE COASTAL WATERS MONDAY NIGHT INTO TUESDAY. OFFSHORE
FLOW WILL BE BRIEF AFTER FRONTAL PASSAGE WITH ONSHORE FLOW
RETURNING WEDNESDAY. LITTLE CHANGE IS EXPECTED THEREAFTER UNTIL
LATE NEXT WEEK.
