A former mayor of Evansville has been picked as the temporary leader of the Indiana United Ways organization.

The group that helps coordinate the 44 local United Ways across the state says Jonathan Weinzapfel will serve as interim president and chief executive officer through the end of 2021.

Weinzapfel says United Way groups stepped up tremendously during the COVID-19 pandemic to raise and distribute money to families in need and assist the state’s nonprofit organizations.

Weinzapfel served eight years as Evansville’s mayor and was the Democratic nominee for state attorney general in the 2020 election, losing to Republican Todd Rokita.

The combination of sunshine and southerly winds will make for another unseasonably warm day throughout the Ohio Valley - expect an afternoon high temperature near 69° this afternoon. Some areas could even see temperatures well into the 70s. 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 cold front that is expected to pass through the Tri-State late Friday evening and early Saturday morning. We won't see any rain from this front, but it will cool temperatures into the low 40s by Saturday morning.
