The KHSAA released a statement saying quote, "The khsaa notified member schools this morning that the start of the football playoffs will be delayed one week in an effort to provide schools and school systems time to review their situations and work with their health departments to determine the best course of action."

The postseason will officially begin the weekend of November 19th-21st.

One Kentucky area coach shared his thoughts on the decision.

"From the KHSAA's standpoint, we just got notice this morning that they were pushing things back for a week to give schools time, an extra week to prepare for the first round, while our state is red. It was just a state decision because most of our state is red and they thought that we would need the extra time to put plans in place of how we're going to be able to complete the playoffs while cases are climbing instead of getting better," said Owensboro Catholic Head Football Coach Jason Morris.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
