On Monday, Governor Eric Holcomb's state wide mask mandate takes full affect, and places like holiday world are already preparing.

"Since holiday world opened this summer, we've been encouraging social distancing throughout the experience. We have ground markers and all of our cues, sign-age to remind people to stay socially distant and we do frequent announcements over our loud system as well to remind our guests. Masks will be required for anyone that wants to enter the park starting Monday for anyone over the age of 7. We do recommend it for kids as well, 2 to 7 and there will be exceptions for people that have medical needs," said Holiday World Vice President of Marketing and Sales Eric Snow.

And if you don't have a mask or you forget it at home, Holiday World has you covered.

"So we highly recommend that our guests bring their own masks that they're comfortable wearing throughout the day and we will have options available at the gate we'll have dollar disposable masks available and the mask that I'm wearing today is available in our gift shops as well. We recommend that our guests remain socially distanced from other parties, and they can feel free to have fun," said Snow.

And if you would like to visit Holiday World, you must purchase a ticket online for the day on which you plan to come.

Temperatures were a heck of a lot more bearable earlier this afternoon - despite our northwesterly winds, temperatures peaked at 54° in Evansville earlier on and are expected to remain quite comfortable as we head into the evening hours. Expect temperatures ranging from 48° to 41° between 7 PM and 10 PM; though the added cloud cover over the coming hours will only allow temperatures to fall as low as 38° by early Wednesday morning. It's not all good news however, it looks as though some of us (especially those north of the Ohio River) could see periods of scattered rainfall throughout our Wednesday morning.
