Meteorologists are expecting rain with some thunderstorms on Thanksgiving Day in southwest Louisiana, according to the National Weather Service's Wednesday afternoon update.
The area could see half an inch to 1 inch of rain Thursday with a moderate threat of scattered thunderstorms, and temperatures are forecast to be above normal — low: 56-63, high 68-76.
The rain will abate in time for Black Friday, which will be cool and dry. Temperatures could dip as low as the 30s Friday and Saturday. There is a chance of "patchy frost" Saturday, according to the forecast released Wednesday.
Sunday comes with its own small rain chances (less than one-tenth of an inch expected), but then next week will start back out at dry, according to NWS Lake Charles Warning Coordination Meteorologist Roger Erickson.
