Sunday begins the National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week.

Many in the profession are behind the scenes and often don't get the spotlight, but they play a critical role in ensuring that law enforcement officers, personnel, and the media have the information needed to do our jobs properly and effectively.

Today we spoke with Telecommunications Supervisor Braden Buss and he told us, "This is a great opportunity to say, 'hey, we know this a stressful job, but we really appreciate what you're doing.' It's just a chance for us to show that to them besides just words of appreciation."

The National Public Safety Telecommunicators week will run through April 17th.

After a damp start to our Monday, the rain and skies gradually cleared for many of us and we were left with a pleasant and breezy, albeit humid afternoon throughout the Tri-State. The southerly winds paired with the clearer skies later in the day helped drive temperatures back into mid to low 80s for many of us. The evening ahead should remain dry and mild; after seeing temperatures around 80° dinnertime and 75° by 10PM, we'll fall off to a morning low near 69° in Evansville early Tuesday morning.
