Discussion
There is a Ridge of High Pressure that is anchored over Arkansas and Louisiana. With High Pressure, comes clear skies, light & variable winds and low rain chances with temperatures able to reach much higher values during the afternoon hours. This pattern is typical during the summer months. So, we will only see a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon. This Ridge will remain anchored over the area during the next couple of days and we will see these conditions continue. However, we can expect to see fair rain chances during the later part of the work week and into the weekend as this ridge begins to break down. Winds will be light and variable with high humidity values.

For the rest of the day
Expect mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with In & Out cloud cover and a slight chance for showers and thunderstorms through the afternoon and early evening. High temperatures will be in the 90's with high humidity values making it feel 105. Most of the viewing area will see partly cloudy skies and there will only be a few, isolated showers. As of 12:00pm, there was not any rain in the area. Winds will remain light to moderate and out of the South throughout the day. Overnight, expect some clearing with tapering rain chances and a muggy feel.

For the rest of the 7day planner
Low rain chances will remain on the board through mid-week as the setup will not chance much. Come the later part of the work week, we will see rain chances go up slightly with increasing chances for the weekend. High temperatures will remain in a seasonal range through the 7day planner. However, high humidity values will make conditions feel much hotter than they are. Peak Heat Index values may reach 108.
 
TODAY...Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies and seasonally hot with a (30%) chance for afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Highs 92-98. The peak heat index may reach 105. SW wind 2-10mph.

WEDNESDAY NIGHT...Fair to partly cloudy skies. Lows 70-75. Little or no wind.
