Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear announced that anyone who would like a flag from the state's COVID-19 Memorial can collect on from the Capitol grounds.  

Since March thousands of miniature American flags have been placed on the lawn in honor of Kentuckians who have died from complications related to the Coronavirus.

If you need assistance in collecting a flag you are asked to contact the Governor's Office of Constituent Services here to make a request to have one sent directly to you.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
