REMARKS:

-Folks remarked about the pleasant start Friday morning with an average low of 66 degrees in central Louisiana. This below the long-term average of 71 degrees. Oak Hill, Esler airport, Elmer, and Pitkin shared the lowest reading of 63 degrees. Eunice stayed warmer with 70 degrees.

-Despite the generally comfortable start, ample sunshine and subsidence ahead of Potential Tropical Cyclone Three (PTC-3) sent most temperatures into the 90s at most sites. The average high was 93 degrees, which is a tad above the long-term benchmark of 91 degrees. Atlanta hit 96 degrees but Yellow Bayou could only manage to get 89 degrees. Some increase in humidity occurred during the PM hours as PTC-3 lumbered toward the Louisiana coast.

-Afternoon heating and proximity to PTC-3 triggered hit-miss tropical showers during the PM time frame. Areal coverage was about 20-30% and amounts were light. Top totals: Atlanta 0.28; Fairfield 0.23; Kees Park in Pineville 0.20; Leesville 0.12; and Colfax 0.08.
