SUMMARY: Louisiana Governor Jeff Landry has signed a bill into law that reclassifies two drugs used for abortions, mifepristone and misoprostol, as Schedule IV controlled dangerous substances. The law makes it illegal for individuals to possess these drugs, with potential prison sentences of up to five years. The bill also establishes the crime of coerced criminal abortion by means of fraud. Advocates argue that the law protects women, while opponents believe it may hinder access to legitimate healthcare. The bill was introduced by State Senator Thomas Pressly, whose sister was unknowingly poisoned by her husband while pregnant.

SUMMARY: Late this evening, isolated showers in Southern Terone Parish and near Lakefront Airport have fizzled out, leaving most areas dry. Clearing skies won't cool temperatures much due to high dew points, with a heat index of 93°F and temperature at 85°F. The upcoming days will remain hot, with mid to upper 90s expected. Father's Day may see some Gulf moisture bringing 30% rain chances, mainly Southshore. An upper high's dominance will limit tropical moisture, decreasing rain chances and keeping the region generally dry. Tropical system development in the Southwestern Gulf may further reduce rain in our area, favoring Texas and Mexico instead.

Chief Meteorologist Chris Franklin says expect hot and dry days into the weekend. There could be some scattered showers next week.
