One big issue facing the City of Evansville during the pandemic is an $8 million budget shortfall for 2021.

Much of that lost revenue can be linked back to the Tropicana Casino being shut down, which is estimated to generate roughly $1 million a month for the city.

Mayor Lloyd Winnecke joined us Wednesday morning to chat about the challenge different departments face, as well as lack of funding for area non-profits desperate for aid during these trying times.

The Evansville City Council plans on wrapping up the discussion with the 3rd round of talks Wednesday evening.

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.
