Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris are set to face off in Utah on Wednesday night in the only vice presidential debate of 2020.

The debate is scheduled to last for 90 minutes at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City, with the debate beginning at 8:00pm.

Within the 90 minute debate, Pence and Harris will face nine segments, lasting around 10 minutes each. According to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD), "the moderator will ask an opening question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a deeper discussion of the topic."

CPD also said the candidates will be tested for COVID-19 prior to the debate, and that there will be no handshakes or physical greetings between the candidates or the moderator. Once on stage, Pence and Harris will have around 12' of space between them, in addition to plexiglass barriers.

The showdown between Pence and Harris comes less than a week after President Trump announced he had tested positive for COVID-19, with other political figures and White House officials also announcing the same.

Sure, yesterday's passing cold front and lingering rainfall made for a cooler-than average, fall-like day across the Tri-State - today on the other hand, was a bit more summer-like. The core of high pressure flowing in behind that cold front has now settled to our east and is actively pumping southerly winds, more heat and gulf humidity back into the Ohio valley. As a result, temperatures pushed back into the mid 80s for the majority of the region; the added humidity even made it feel a few degrees hotter as well. As for the rest of the evening, conditions will remain dry with temperatures gradually falling from 80° around dinnertime into the mid to low 70s by 10PM. The combination of added cloud cover overnight and those aforementioned southerly winds will help keep temperatures mild tonight - we'll only dip as low as 67° early Friday morning in the River City.
