REMARKS:

-A weak cold front bisected central Louisiana Friday morning and created a noticeable temperature difference. Well to the north of the front, minimum temperatures were near 50 degrees in portions of Natchitoches, Winn, Grant, and LaSalle Parishes. Low temperatures remained in the lower to middle 60s south of the front.

-A stiff southerly wind caused the weak cold front to transition to a warm front and move northward. In response, the warmest air of the the year thus far literally blasted in! The average high in central Louisiana was 81 degrees with Esler Airport reaching 84 degrees. The lowest high was 78 degrees in Legacy Pointe in Pineville and on Sisson Road northwest of Natchitoches.

-Light amounts of rain prevailed over mainly western and northern parishes. The top total of 0.10 inch occurred at Robeline, Hagewood, Natchez (LA), Joyce, and Gum Springs.
