Excessive Heat Warning in Effect for the Evansville Area

News 25 meteorologist Scott Dimmich reports that a excessive heat warning is in effect for the entire tri-state area today and a heat advisory is in effect tomorrow.

Obviously what this means is that it will just be stupid hot with the temperature hitting the high 90's and the heat index touching anywhere between 100-120 degrees.

Needless to say, but if you don't need to be outdoors for an extended periods of time, don't be. However, that's impossible for many people whose jobs require being outside. In the event that you absolutely MUST be outdoors today, keep these tips in mind:

Evansville-Area Residents Who Have ‘Made it Big’ – Ryan’s List

Years ago, my wife and I were at the Hard Rock restaurant in Orlando, FL and while waiting for a table, we ordered a drink at the bar. The bartender did his job and asked for ID. However when he saw our Indiana driver's licenses, he asked, "Did you guys ride your tractors down here?" Since we were in Florida, I wanted to reply with, "Are you here legally?" But I didn't, I bit my tongue and drank my beer.

Being an Evansville resident since the day I was born (West Side! Represent!), I know the stigma placed on us by the rest of the nation based solely on our location on Earth (which we obviously have no control over).

Best Places to Go Swimming in Evansville – Our Top Five

With the summer months approaching (and the heat already here), Tri-Staters love to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. Barbecues, vacations, sporting events and everything else under the sun can be done with blue skies above us. The only bad thing about summer (according to some) is the heat and how to cope with it. One way is find a good place to swim. With Evansville being called “the river city,” you may think the river would be a surefire place to swim. You can swim in the Ohio river, however you do have a few things to worry about such as currents, hidden things under the water such as logs and, of course, boat traffic  on the river. I don’t think you want to be practicing your breast stroke in oncoming barge traffic!  Though we don’t have a beach easily accessible in Evansville, there are still plenty of places to go for a swim in and around the city. In no particular order are our top five places to go swimming.
