Meteorologist Mike Iscovitz has officially been named the Chief Meteorologist of Your Gulf Coast Weather Authority, congrats Mike! The tropics are quiet at the moment but there is plenty of heat to monitor, with several days likely hitting triple digits. Aside from the hot sunshine, we'll be dry with rain chances remaining at about 10% or less on the day to day. Try to take advantage of the cooler parts of the day (early, late) to get outside, celebrate Dad/Juneteenth and exercise for yourself/pets. Unfortunately, drought and heat relief is not on the horizon in the near future.
