A stark reminder from the Internal Revenue Service to file those Federal Income Taxes by the May 17 deadline.

The original deadline for filing 2020 returns was postponed due to the pandemic.

However, the IRS is warning that there are steep criminal penalties for those who attempt to evade their taxes altogether.

They are also reminding you to be on the lookout for scammers attempting to steal personal information.

The agency says it will never contact you by phone, email, or social media.

Scattered rainfall continues to affect portions of the Tri-State and it seems as though it will continue to do so through the remainder of the evening and overnight. After reaching an afternoon high near 80° earlier on, expect temperatures to gradually fall toward 70° by dinnertime before dwindling into the mid 60s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will dive all the way back down into the upper 50s by the predawn hours Wednesday; we'll fall to 58° in Evansville. The cold front and associated low responsible for all of our rain chances both today and tonight is expected to stall stall Wednesday, prolonging our isolated rain chances tomorrow, especcially for those of us north and east of Evasnville.
