The Kentucky Supreme Court will hear verbal arguments against Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear's COVID-19 Executive Orders on Sept. 17 at 10:00 a.m.

In July,  a Scott County Circuit Judge issued a temporary restraining order against Beshear's COVID-19 Executive Orders. Similarly, a Boon County circuit Judge also granted a temporary restraining order.

On July 17, the Kentucky Supreme Court stopped all attempts at blocking the governor's COVID-19 orders until the arguments against the case could be heard.

Now, all parties are in opposition of Beshear's orders have been asked to submit a first brief to the Clerk of the Supreme Court no later than Aug 28. Then, they've been asked to submit their response brief by Sept 8. Finally, the oral argument will take place in the Kentucky Supreme Court on Sept. 17.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
