Discussion
A stationary front is extended through the entire Southeast U.S. and will be fizzling out during the next couple of days. As this front meanders over our state, Warm & Moist air will continue to be pumped into the area and against this front, from the Gulf of Mexico. This means that we will start out with more Fog/Haze early today, followed by a fair chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the afternoon hours, going into the evening. During this time we will see this front continue to break down. So, today and Tuesday will bring with it decreasing rain chances, becoming slight by Mid-week as this front fizzles out. Added moisture will keep humidity values up and subsequently, Heat Indices high.
 
For the rest of the day
Expect plenty of sunshine with clouds building in throughout the morning,  becoming partly cloudy  during the midday hours. In & Out clouds throughout the afternoon will be accompanied by scattered showers and thunderstorms and temperatures well in to the 90's. Added moisture will bring humidity and Heat Index values up. Expect peak Heat Indices ranging from 100-106 for some areas. Winds will be light to moderate and variable.

For the rest of the 7day planner
During the next couple of days we will see rain chances decreasing, becoming a slight chance for isolated showers by Wednesday. The end of the work week will bring with it, conditions that are much closer to a summertime pattern; mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies, Highs in the 90's (feeling like 100-105) and low rain chances. Conditions will remain that way throughout the remainder of the 7day planer.
 
TODAY...Partly to mostly cloudy skies with scattered (40%) showers and thunderstorms. Highs 94-100. The peak heat index may reach 107. North, becoming East wind 2-10 mph, except stronger and variable near storms.

 

MONDAY NIGHT...Fair to partly cloudy skies and humid. Lows 72-77. Little or no wind.
