Downtown Evansville's Christmas Tree is ready for the holiday season.

However, the city did have to enjoy those festivities online. For the first time ever, the city's annual event was virtual. Despite the changes, The Signature School Choir, led by Henry Maurer, performed moments before Mayor Lloyd Winnecke gave a few remarks before starting the countdown to turn on the Christmas tree lights.

The donated tree is a 25-foot tall, 18-foot wide blue spruce. It is decorated with about 25,000 lights and topped with an illuminated “E.”The Christmas tree will be on display in front of the Civic Center through the holiday season and will be removed sometime after January 1, 2021.

Our Tuesday was nothing short of chilly, gloomy, gray and wintry throughout the Tri-State; afternoon high temperatures only reached as high as the middle to low 30s throughout the region. Our peak temperature of 32° in Evansville was 16° below the norm for this time of the year. As for the evening ahead, cloud cover and cool air will linger - additionally, there have been reports of sporadic flurries on and off throughout the day and some portions in the Lower Ohio Valley may continue to see brief snow showers through 10 o’clock this evening. Our winds will shift southward overnight tonight into early Wednesday morning and while it won’t necessarily drive temperatures higher for the predawn hours, It will help keep temperatures from falling much further than where they currently stand. Extract the morning low temperature near 29° in Evansville as we kick off our midweek.
