Luckily I have only seen frogs and a variety of insects. We have some forecasters that saw skunks and a baby alligator. Stay safe guys!

Surface obs and satellite imagery indicate that a low pressure area has formed just off the SETX/SWLA coast. The system is likely to move inland before significant development can occur. Regardless of development, it's expected to bring locally heavy rainfall to the area.

Surface obs/Satellite show a low pressure area has formed in that area. In comparison to Lake Charles and Cameron, Beaumont will get less rain.

A mid level low pressure area will move across the area bringing thunderstorms with heavy rains. Localized flooding will be possible. Expect showers and thunderstorms all weekend.

Thanks to a recent project from the CAPE program at ULL, you can get a peek of what it'd be like hitching a ride on a weather balloon! The balloon was launched last Sunday morning from the LCH office and ascended to more than 60,000 ft!

High pressure near the surface will keep deep moisture off the gulf moving across the area. An upper level trough will aid in developing showers and thunderstorms with the greatest chances on the east side of trough.

A bit higher coverage/rain chances through that time period. Friday looking the wettest right now with a marginal excessive rainfall risk.

Scattered thunderstorms day in and day out... While parts of Lake Charles saw even an inch or less of rain, the south portion of the city (and us at the airport) got a good soaking. Area gauges showed 2-5", with 4.90" officially here at LCH. 3.20" of which fall in one hour!

The somewhat active weather pattern we've experienced the last couple of days will continue today. A few coastal showers and thunderstorms will move inland and expand in coverage through this morning and into the afternoon hours.

High pressure over the Eastern U.S. ridging into our area will bring continued deep moist southerly flow off the gulf. This combined with upper level impulses moving west across the area will produce scattered to likely chances of showers and thunderstorms.
