The National Weather Service in Lake Charles is expecting a dry and mild period for the next seven days. Low temperatures will run in the mid 50s to lower 60s, and highs will drop from the mid 80s through this weekend to the upper 70s to lower 80s next week.

In the tropics, Hurricane Gonzalo poses no risk for us, but could be a problem for Bermuda on Friday. We will be monitoring the Bay of Campeche next week for possible tropical cyclone development, but forecast confidence is low at this point.
