On Wednesday, December 16 at 6:00 p.m., the Evansville Police Department (EPD) will host a drive-thru toy giveaway in front of the Civic Center Christmas tree.

EPD says cars will be allowed to start lining up at 5:00 p.m. and no earlier, as to not interrupt normal business operations.

During the toy giveaway, several EPD Officers, Santa Claus, and members from community groups will be present to assist.

According to EPD, several thousand toys will be given away during the event, with each child who comes being allowed to pick one new toy. After receiving the toys, cars will be allowed to get back in line until the toys run out.

EPD says the event is thanks to the Indiana Pacers, Jakks Pacific Toy Company, and Papa John’s Pizza. For the 11th straight year, the Pacers and JAKKS Pacific have partnered to deliver a total of more than 400,000 toys. This year, more than 34,000 toys will be delivered, courtesy of Papa John’s Pizza.

We headed out to cloudy skies and some damp conditions this morning across the Tri-State. We've been tracking scattered showers for the first part of the day. While it’s been mostly cloudy, there will be some sunshine as soon as we get the rain out of the area. Temperatures are still expected to reach unseasonably warm values this afternoon. With some sunshine and winds out of the southwest highs should have no problem reaching the upper 50s and lower 60s. Clouds will clear out, but the southerly wind flow will keep overnight lows in the low to mid 40s. Tomorrow morning won't be all that bad considering it will be December 2nd.
