WASHINGTON (AP) — Free beer is the latest White House-backed incentive to persuade Americans to get vaccinated for COVID-19.

President Joe Biden announced a "month of action" on Wednesday to get more shots into arms before the July 4 holiday.

That could lead, he said, to "a summer of freedom, a summer of joy ... an All-American summer."

Biden updated the nation on his plans to get 70% of adults at least partially vaccinated by Independence Day.

The latest vaccine sweetener, provided by Anheuser-Busch, builds on other incentives like cash giveaways, sports tickets and paid leave, to keep up the pace of Americans getting shots.

The weather will be pulling a 180 as we head into the evening hours and kick off our work week.

Gusts between 25-35mph are possible from late this evening through Monday night for the valley while the foothills and the Sierra will continue to see the windy conditions through Tuesday morning. This has prompted a Red Flag Warning for the Valley 11pm tonight through 8pm Monday while the Sierra and Foothills will last through Tuesday morning.
