Indiana University can legally require COVID-19 vaccines this fall, according to a Federal Appeals Court.

The Bloomington-based institution was one for the first institutions to announce such a mandate.

The latest ruling goes against a group of students who challenged the immunization requirement, upholding a lower court's decision that the IU network is acting reasonably to protect health and safety on University campuses.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
