Cenla residents enjoyed a warm Monday with highs ranging through the 80s. The highest temperatures were reported from the northwestern portion of the area where the Forest Service station near Bellwood in Natchitoches Parish hit 90 degrees. The Natchitoches Airport reported 88 and Many was close behind with 87.
The 30-year benchmark high is 78 degrees, thus you could safely say that it was a "warm one." The warm weather will hold through at least Thursday. After that, a cold front will cool things down for the weekend. More on that later this week.
