Area hospitals are receiving the first batches of the Pfizer vaccine. On Thursday front line healthcare workers with Ascension St. Vincent will be vaccinated for the first time.

Similar to Deaconess Gateway, St. Vincent is gearing up for a trial run on several workers to get a better idea of how administering the vaccine will work.

Vaccinations at St. Vincent will begin this evening at 5:00. 44News will have a crew there for the historic moment, you can also tune in to our evening broadcasts for additional coverage.

Temperatures dipped back into the upper 30s and low 40s for many of us early this morning, marking our coldest start to a day in Evansville (where we fell to 41°) in more than a week. Fortunately, the chilly start to the day didn't mean that our afternoon would be a loss, it was anything but - in fact, after seeing temperature around 57° by our lunch hour, afternoon highs crept back into the mid to low 60s area-wide; we hit 63° in the River City - while that's still 2° shy of the norm for October 27th, we'll take a 3° increase over yesterday's high of 60°. The clear skies that allowed temperatures to climb as high as they did earlier on however, are on their way out as our next round of rainfall inches ever closer. The remainder of the evening ahead should remain dry, but isolated rainfall will return to the Tri-State as early as the overnight and predawn hours Thursday.
