Vanderburgh County has been a hot spot for Covid-19 cases but with vaccine distribution underway in the tri-state that could all change.

On Wednesday morning, Evansville Mayor Lloyd Winnecke joined Tommy Mason and Lauren Leslie to talk about everything happening in the River City.

Wednesday was also a historic morning for the Tri-State as healthcare workers received the Pfizer vaccine at Deaconess Gateway in Newburgh.

Mayor Winnecke weighed in on vaccine distribution and provided some updates on a couple of projects we will see come to life in the new year.

Just another day in paradise; afternoon highs again topped out in the mid to low 70s across the Tri-State under a mix of sun and clouds. If you have plans out and about this evening, make sure to grab a jacket before you head out - after seeing temperatures near 64° around dinnertime, the mercury will dip to 57° by 10 o'clock before falling all the way back down into the mid to upper 40s early Wednesday morning. Sure, tomorrow morning's lows of 47° will represent our mildest start to a day since this past Friday, but it's still going to make for a cool start to our midweek nonetheless. The combination of sunshine and southerly winds however, will help drive temperatures back into the low 70s by lunchtime - if you're planning on lunching outside Wednesday, make sure not to do so in the shade. Wind gusts near 15 mph at times during our lunch hour will make for a chilly brown bag lunch outdoors.
