An additional $750,657 is being sought out by City of Evansville officials to assist area residents facing eviction due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, the Evansville City Council will consider approving a finance ordinance on Monday night that would allocate emergency financial assistance for residents facing the end of the CDC eviction moratorium.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
