TROPICAL UPDATE FROM US NWS LAKE CHARLES 6.12.24

The National Hurricane Center will be monitoring the southern gulf/Bay of Campeche for tropical development through the next several days. At this time, there is a great deal of uncertainty on the eventual solution, however it does appear that increased rain chances, higher than normal tides, and breezy conditions will be possible for the local area late in the weekend into early next week. For the latest tropical weather outlooks which are updated at 8AM, 2PM, 8PM, and 2AM CDT follow along at the NHC’s webpage at the following links.

next few days. For more information, see products issued by the
