Back to school is just around the corner in some communities and Owensboro Community and Technical College students have the opportunity to register for classes drive through style.

"School starts Monday August, 17th, and we've been thinking about doing this and so we've been open for the last couple months by appointment and we still notice there are some students who are reticent about coming out. They want to know, are you really open and we thought the drive through registration would be a great way to say hey, even if you want to just stay in your car, we can help you out," said OCTC Vice President of Student Affairs Kevin Beardmore.

Like other colleges and universities across the country, OCTC will have in person classes this year though they will look different.

"Here, we've actually used some furniture to help space students out, so we have furniture that's not being used it's pushed together and that makes sure that all the students are in seats at least 6 feet apart," said Beardmore.

This two day in person registration will end on Saturday and if you can't make it, you still have other options to resister for classes.

"Drive through is today until 5, and Saturday from 9 am to noon. We're open all next week Monday through Thursday from 8-5:30 and then we're open Friday 8-4:30 and we're open next Saturday again too and students can come on in, we just ask that they have a mask on, they physically distance and we've been able to help everybody out," said Beardmore.

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.
