I've just finished talking to the weather watchers and they agreed that it was a pleasant Wednesday.
Morning lows were in the middle 50s to the lower 60s. Esler Airport reported 55 degrees this morning while several locations reported 60 degrees, including Marksville, Colfax, Ville Platte, and Eunice.
Considerable cloudiness kept afternoon high temperatures in the lower 80s, although DeRidder only managed a high of 77 degrees. Trace amounts of rain fell during the afternoon and evening, mainly along and north of a DeRidder-Alexandria-Jena line.
A warm day is expected Thursday with little chance for rain.
