On Wednesday, Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke, the Vanderburgh County Health Department, and local school officials provided an update on attendance during the winter sports season for Evansville schools.

Only two tickets will be allowed per student-athlete/essential personnel.

No scouts will be allowed at events - though college recruiters will be.

For swimming events at the Lloyd Pool, no spectators will be allowed at all.

The Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation, Diocese of Evansville, Evansville Day School, and Evansville Christian Schools are all backing the new attendance plan, which was made in collaboration with the Vanderburgh County Health Department.

The cold front has come and gone and with it our threat for Severe Weather. However, scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to affect portions of the Tri-State through the remainder of the evening ahead. In fact, there is a possibility that some of the thunderstorms we see between now and 9PM or so could produce small hail and wind gusts in excess of 40 mph. Anyone planning on attending a football game this evening should make sure an umbrella or poncho is on hand to keep you dry and should anticipate at least some rain delays to occur. The rain should finally exit east of the Tri-State between 10PM and 12AM; it's around that time that wind speeds will again pick up some steam - our northwesterly winds are expected to gust as high as 35 mph at times overnight.
