The National Weather Service in Lake Charles is expecting rain chances to increase this weekend, especially in south central Louisiana. Rain totals will be between 0.25-0.75 inch in that region. Southeast Texas and southwest and central Louisiana will only carry small rain chances this weekend.

Next week will be mostly dry, and temperatures will be near normal.

In the tropics, a weak low pressure area in the Atlantic has a low (10%) chance of developing in the next five days, but it poses no threat to our region over the next week.
