Daily brief (6/3): Top stories from the Springfield media

HotHot.

Just cut and paste that word over the next several days for your forecast. Today will be sunny and hot, with few clouds in the sky. The high will be 92.

Heat indices could reach as high as 96, although a breeze of 10 to 15 mph should keep the air from getting too thick.

Tomorrow will be more of the same: Sunny and hot.
