Overview
Today there is a Stationary front stretching across the SE U-S that is continuing to fizzle out. In the wake of this front, a ridge of high pressure is building in and providing clear skies and warm temperatures. A Low Pressure System is developing over the Central Plains and Midwest. 
In the Tropics, eyes are fixed on T.S. Ernest.

Discussion
A stationary front is extended through the entire Southeast U.S. and will be fizzling out later today.  In the meantime rain chances are going to remain high for today. Earlier a piece of energy stalled out over our area and dumped a lot of rain over about 1/3 of our area. Several Flash Flood Warnings were issued and have since expired.  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 continue to see a fair chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms throughout the afternoon hours, going into the evening. During this time we will also see this front continue to break down. So, today there will be a good chance for rain with decreasing rain chances overnight, becoming a slight chance, tomorrow. Added moisture will keep humidity values up and Heat Indices high.
 
For the rest of the day
Expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with rain chances returning later this afternoon and into the evening. Temperatures for most of the viewing area will climb well in to the 90's with a light and variable wind. However areas that experienced the abundant rainfall this morning could see much lower temperatures and less humidity for the rest of the day. As of Noon, most of the area was seeing temperatures in the upper 80's with Heat Index values in the mid 90's. This afternoon we will see partly to mostly cloudy skies and warming temperatures with Heat Index values climbing to the century mark. Winds will be light to moderate and variable.

For the rest of the 7day planner
During the next couple of days we will see slight rain chances with conditions returning 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 with slightly higher rain chances closer to the weekend.
 
TODAY...Partly to mostly cloudy skies with a good chance (50%) for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs 92-98. The heat index may reach 106 for some areas. Calm wind, becoming East 2-12 mph.

TUESDAY NIGHT...Fair to partly cloudy skies and seasonal conditions. Lows 69-76. Little or no wind.
