It was a fine Tuesday with low humidity, comfortable mornings, and warm days. Sounds like fall, doesn't it?
Cenla residents were greeted by another comfortable start as they headed out to work and school. Temperatures ranged from the middle 50s to the lower 60s. The lowest readings came from Leesville at 55 and Jena and Winnfield with 56. Opelousas, Eunice, and the D.G. Hunter Power Plant in Alexandria registered 62.
Ample sunshine and dry air once again allowed for a 25-35 degrees spread in morning to afternoon temperatures. Bellwood hit 91 degrees while Natchez, Mississippi reached 84. The low humidity, below 30% at midday in places, made for a pleasant day.
I still expect some humidity to return. The weather pattern will change as a southeast wind picks up moisture from the Gulf of Mexico and moves it toward Cenla. This moisture, combined with another cold front, will bring rain back into the forecast Thursday-Tuesday. The best chance of getting wet will be this weekend with the front near the area. Unlike the last front, which made a clean pass through Cenla, the next front will hang up near the area. That's why there will be no significant temperature drop nor another strong influx of dry air.
I'll update tomorrow.
