Indiana State Police will be increasing patrols to promote safe travels during the Thanksgiving holiday.

Indiana State Police wants to remind everyone planning to travel this holiday season to drive responsibly and ensure every passenger is buckled up properly.

Last year during the Thanksgiving holiday, more than 2,300 crashed occurred on Indiana roadways, which resulted in 450 injures and 8 fatalities.

Troopers will be concentrating their efforts on impaired, aggressive, and distracted drivers.

Wow!!!! It's cold!!!! After a trace of snow in Evansville and some higher amounts to the south, we're waking up to temperatures in the mid to upper teens across the Tri-State. Thankfully, road crews did a fantastic job treating the roads to keep conditions from getting slick. However, the northerly winds gusting as high as 15 to 20 mph has dropped wind chill values into the single digits and even below zero in our western communities. There won't be much of an improvement in temperatures this afternoon. With the strong northerly wind flow and dry skies our highs will only reach the mid to upper 20s. Winds will stay quite breezy keeping the wind chill factor in place through the day.
