Daily brief (6/18): Top stories from the Springfield media

Rain chances diminish throughout the day, as clouds give way to mostly sunny skies. A high of 87 is expected, and heat indexes could hit 93.

A steady wind with gusts of up to 24 mph will provide some relief, though.

There’s a 30 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms tonight, but tomorrow will be sunny and hot, with a high of 90.
