With colder months arriving you may have noticed more deer crossing our Tri-State roadways.

AAA says this comes as a warning to area drivers of the dangers involved in deer versus vehicle collisions.  

Deer-vehicle collisions usually increase in October, and peak in November and December.

In 2019 there were more than 3,000 crashes involving deer in the Bluegrass State, according to Kentucky State Police.

Nationwide there were more than 1.5 million accidents involving deer.

The travel experts at AAA say, the average deer-related car insurance claim in Indiana, Kentucky, and Illinois is roughly $3,500.

We're going to be looking out for another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs should peak in the mid to high 90s with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 105°. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. By that time there is a good potential of some rainfall and storms picking up across the Tri-State. There is a chance we could see some severe weather develop with these storms. We'll start to see relief return Friday afternoon into Saturday.
