It’s Monday, June 24th – and NBC 6 has the top stories you need to know for the day.

No. 1 – It’s going to be a scortcher across South Florida with high temperatures in the 90s, but feeling like the triple digits with a chance of showers in the afternoon. Keep your NBC 6 app handy for First Alert Doppler 6000 radar and push alerts with weather updates throughout the day.

No. 2 - Families in a Southwest Miami-Dade neighborhood woke up Sunday morning to find their cars had been burglarized – and it was all caught on camera.

It happened at an apartment complex near Southwest 114th Avenue and 36thStreet. Surveillance video caught the three crooks smashing windows and looking through nearly a dozen cars just before 5 a.m.

No. 3 - A building at a South Florida high school went up in flames Sunday. Now, investigators are trying to figure out what sparked the blaze.

The incident happened at the field house locker room at Miami Edison Senior High School in Miami. The football team was heading back home from college tours when the fire started just after 1 p.m. Sunday. In a tweet, the team said, “We will rise.”

Firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading to the weight room and the main building.

No. 4 - The majority of Florida's Hispanic voters disapprove of President Donald Trump's job performance but are against his impeachment, according to a new survey conducted by Mason-Dixon for Telemundo Station Group.

Fifty-four percent of the voters surveyed expressed disapproval of Trump's performance, with 37 percent saying they approved it. The biggest difference, however, is among voters of Cuban origin, who approve the president's management at 59 percent.

But despite being dissatisfied with his management, 46 percent of respondents were against an eventual impeachment in Congress following the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller.

No. 5 - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was in Saudi Arabia on Monday in a hastily arranged visit amid mounting tensions between Washington and Tehran as Iran's navy chief warned Iranian forces wouldn't hesitate to shoot down more U.S. surveillance drones from their skies.

The downing of the drone, valued at more than $100 million, saw the United States pull back from the brink of a military strike on Iran after President Donald Trump last week called off strikes in retaliation. Iran's naval commander, Rear Adm. Hossein Khanzadi, threatened Washington, saying that Tehran is capable of shooting down other American spy drones that violate Iranian airspace.

No. 6 - A baby formula sold exclusively at Walmart is under recall because it could contain metal.

Perrigo Company is voluntarily recalling a single lot of Parent's Choice Advantage Milk-based powder with iron. People should stop using the baby formula immediately.
