The National Weather Service in Lake Charles is expecting a dry weekend, but changes are coming next week, and rain chances will be high by the middle to end of next week. Temperature-wise, Friday will see above normal temperatures, but near normal to even a little below normal temperatures will be seen this weekend.

In the tropics, it will be quiet through Tuesday. NWS will have to watch the Bay of Campeche/southern Gulf of Mexico for a possible low pressure area by Wednesday or Thursday next week.
