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.

Today's high of 93° not only marks our hottest recorded temperature of the year, but our highest since the afternoon of August 10th of 2020! Despite the oppressive heat, the day itself wasn't necessarily unpleasant; while peak temperatures climbed abnormally high for this time of the year, a weak cold front passing to our south ushered in a breezy northerly wind flow that helped take the edge off that summer-like heat across the Tri-State earlier this afternoon. The evening ahead will remain quite pleasant, albeit mild - expect the mercury to dip from 87° to 75° between dinnertime and 10PM. Between the northerly winds and clear conditions overnight, morning low temperatures will trend toward the upper 50s and low 60s early Tuesday; we'll fall to 60° even in Evansville.
