Beaumont, Texas to Lafayette, Louisiana

Another quick little trip, playing catch up tonight. The last three trips will include Beaumont, which is fantastic, if you ask me. This trip will last only about 2 hours, covering 134 miles. That means an average speed of about 64mph, all along one dang highway. Let’s turn this car around and make our way to the east.

The difference between the last road trip and this one is that we will be driving through the area a day sooner. As a result, the wave moving into the Plains will still be hung up in eastern Montana, and a weak area of high pressure will lie over the eastern Gulf of Mexico. This is the perfect set up to cycle onshore some low level moisture into east Texas and southern Louisiana. Expect considerable overcast with some showers from Beaumont to Lake Charles, but some clearing from that point to Lafayette. Not a complete washout, but disappointing, compared to the previous trip, covering much of the same ground!
