SUMMARY: The sheriff-elect of Tangipahoa Parish, Gerald Sticker, announced that the inmate population at the parish jail has been temporarily reduced due to two recent escapes. Sticker plans to require every inmate to wear a bracelet with an infrared tag to avoid counting errors in the future. He also acknowledged the long-standing security and staffing challenges at the jail, partly due to low pay for employees. Sticker expressed his commitment to ensuring the safety of both citizens and inmates. He hopes to implement programs such as ministry, G.E.D, and trade-school to prevent inmates from returning to a life of crime.

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.
