The City of Evansville Engineer's Office wanted to remind residents to blow grass clippings toward their property, and not toward the street Monday.

They warned the grass clippings can get into storm sewers, causing clogs that prevent surface water from draining properly.

The clippings can also create road hazards for motorcyclists, reducing surface traction.

Authorities also say, leaving the clippings on the street is a violation of the Evansville municipal code, and subject to fines.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another abnormally mild day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Friday evening looks as though it will be just as pleasant; after seeing the upper 60s earlier in the day, we'll dip to 60° by 5 PM before falling towards 54° around 7 o’clock. We are however, watching a passing low pressure system and accompanying cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning.
