MOLINE, Illinois - It's pretty hard to believe that it's actually February and not May.
The average high this time of the year is 37° in the Quad Cities and for the first week of May, the average highs in the metro area are around 69°.
Record warmth moved in Friday when we topped out at 73° in the Quad Cities. We reached 70° on Saturday for another record high, but the warmest came Sunday.
The 74° high Sunday established the all-time record warmest temperature for February.
We'll see another record high today, tomorrow, and Wednesday.
I'm forecasting 75° Wednesday and that would set another all-time record high for February for the Quad Cities.
Enjoy this while you can. Winter returns this weekend with a major winter storm across parts of Iowa and Minnesota later this week.
We could see some light snow Friday night and early Saturday!
