Overview
There is a Low Pressure System over New England that has an associated cold front that is stretched south, through the Ohio River valley and into the Central and Southern plains. A weak, secondary Low Pressure is over ArkLaTex and will slowly fizzle out as it moves Southeast. In the wake of this system, a ridge of High Pressure will provide cooler conditions and clear skies.

Discussion
This front is moving toward the East Coast. The tail end of the front extends through the SE U.S. and will stall out, bringing elevated rain chances through the weekend. Sunday and Monday will have the highest chances for rain. After the front pushes through and fizzles out, expect a ridge of high pressure to move over our area. This means that clear skies and low rain chances are on the way!
  
For the rest of the day
Expect to see mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies with increasing clouds and rising rain chances this afternoon.  Highs will climb into the upper 80's and lower 90's with a little humidity (Not enough for an impressive heat index). Rain chances will remain on the board through the next couple of days as a stationary front fizzles out over our area. Call it, seasonably warm with moderate rain chances and a light to moderate winds, swinging around to the. 

For the rest of the 7day planner
Expect to see gradually increasing clouds and slowly rising rain chances throughout the next couple of days. This front will move over Central Louisiana, stall out and provide elevated rain chances through the beginning of the work week. After the stalled front fizzles out, expect clearing skies and highs remaining in the mid 80's and lower 90's throughout the forecast.

TODAY...Expect partly to mostly cloudy with a chance 40% for scattered showers and thunderstorms. Highs 86-93. East wind 2-12 mph.

FRIDAY NIGHT...Fair to partly cloudy skies with some lingering rain possible. Lows 64-70. Little or no wind.
