Discussion
A ridge of high pressure is extended over the Gulf Coast states and this feature is helping keep rain chances down for now. With low rain chances, expect Hot & Humid conditions through Wednesday. During the daytime hours, we will be under a Heat Advisory. It is important to stay hydrated and limit outdoor activity while Heat Index values remain close to 110.  Throughout the rest of the day and early evening, we will see Mostly clear skies and extremely muggy conditions. After this ridge of high pressure begins to break down, the end of the week will bring with it more normal conditions. Highs in the mid to upper 90's, partly cloudy skies and a slight chance for rain.
 
For the rest of the day
Expect plenty of sunshine with a few clouds possible, becoming partly cloudy at times. Rain chances will be kept to a minimum (<10%) and Peak Heat Index values will be near or over 110. Overnight, expect some clearing with tapering rain chances and a muggy feel. Winds will become light and variable.

For the rest of the 7day planner
During the next couple of days we will see rain chances stay at or near 0%. Meanwhile, temperatures will stay high through Wednesday. After this ridge of high pressure begins to give in, temps will drop a little and rain chances return, bringing some relief to the area. However, Heat index values will range from 105-110 for the rest of the week.  
 
TODAY...Sunny to partly cloudy skies with In & Out cloud cover and HOT & Humid conditions. Highs 96-103. Heat Index ranging from 105-110, with a Heat Advisory in effect for our entire area. Winds will be South & SW 2-13mph.
