Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb on Friday signed Executive Order 20-40 to increase child care options for families seeking support during virtual school days.

Executive Order 20-40 allows school corporations to contract with organizations like the Boys and Girls Club or the YMCA to operate school-age child care programs in locations, in addition to public school buildings to help families who need care while their students are engaged in e-learning.

The order also increases the number of school-aged children allowed to gather in a home on school days for e-learning from six to ten, without requiring the child care setting to be licensed.

It was another chilly start across the Tri-State; while we only dipped as low as 43° in Evansville, many others across the Tri-State fell into the upper 30s earlier this morning. The cool air didn't linger long however, temperatures quickly reached back into the mid 70s across the region this afternoon - higher pressure camped out over the southeastern quarter of the country will continue to keep the skies above the Tri-State clear while gradually driving temperatures higher over the next few days. Despite our anticipated southerly winds this evening, you may still want to grab a jacket before your head out to dinner; after seeing a temperature near 64° around dinnertime, we'll fall off toward the mid to upper 50s by 10 o'clock. Overnight lows will again dwindle into the mid to low 40s for the majority of the Ohio Valley early Tuesday morning.
