President Donald Trump said he would not attend Biden's swearing-in, which would make him the first outgoing president to skip his replacement's inauguration in more than 150 years.

Among those present at Wednesday's ceremony include three former presidents and their wives - President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, President George W. Bush and Laura Bush, and President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, as well as Vice President Mike Pence and former Vice President Dan Quayle.

After Harris and Biden take their oaths of office Wednesday, President-elect Biden will deliver an inaugural address on his plans for the country and the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.

It was another brutally hot afternoon throughout the Tri-State; afternoon highs peaked in the mid to low 90s for our third straight day with heat indices approaching and even surpassing 100° at times earlier on. As for the remainder of the evening, one can expect much of the same - temperatures will stick around the upper 80s through at least dinnertime before dipping to 80° or so by 10PM. Winds shifting southward overnight will only allow temperatures to fall as low as the mid to low 70s throughout the Ohio Valley; we'll kick off what may end up being our hottest day in years with a morning low temperature of 73° in Evansville.
