NWS Lake Charles weather update

Published 12:50 pm Tuesday, September 11, 2018

As of 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, the National Hurricane Center has increased the chances for tropical development in the western Gulf of Mexico to a high (70%) chance. A tropical depression is likely to form Thursday and head towards south Texas Friday and Saturday.

We are expecting a wet forecast to continue through the end of the week. One to three inches of rain is expected, with locally higher amounts. However, if the system that comes in the Gulf comes closer to our region, we could see substantially higher amounts. Stay in touch with the updating weather forecasts this week.
Tides will run a foot above normal. This will result in minor coastal flooding only during periods of high tides this week.
