Here's a COVID-19 Summary report for Nov 23 via GRDHD:

The state of Kentucky is currently reporting 158,100 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 1,787 statewide deaths.

While Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear recently issued a new COVID-19 Executive Order in an effort to manage the surging number of COVID-19 cases and deaths throughout the state, those orders are now being disputed by Kentucky's Attorney General, who's calling them a violation of constitutional rights.

After what was our coldest start today since January 8th, temperatures only climbed as high as 25° in Evansville earlier today, marking our coolest afternoon in just under two weeks. The evening ahead will be equally bone-chilling; after seeing temperatures around 21° at dinnertime we'll tumble back down to 19° by 10 o’clock under gradually decreasing cloud cover. The combination of clear skies and northerly winds will allow temperatures to fall all the way back down to 15° in Evansville early Friday morning. Worse yet, windchill values are expected to dive right back down into the single digits area-wide.
