Federal Jury trials have been suspended through at least late January in Indiana's Southern District as COVID-19 cases surge throughout the state.

An order sent Friday by Chief Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson, suspends all in-person jury trials in all divisions of the U.S. District Court Southern District of Indiana until at least January 15th.

The Southern District has courts in Indianapolis, Terre Haute, Evansville, and New Albany.

The District Court's order came the same day as Governor Holcomb signed a new executive order reinstating limits on crowd sizes for nearly every Hoosier county in response to the increase of coronavirus cases.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
