Springlike Warmth Setting More Record Highs Across the Country

16 Feb 2017, 2:15 pm

In most areas of the nation, it has been unseasonably mild and much warmer temperatures are ahead through this weekend. WeatherNation Meteorologist David Neal has a look at the warmth we have seen for far this season in the following video:

Several record highs fell yesterday along the Front Range and into the Plains. Denver, Gillette, and Sheridan saw records fall.

South Dakota saw the most record highs yesterday and more records may fall today.

From the High Plains to the Front Range, more records could fall today as temperatures build into the 70s in many areas. Denver and Cheyenne have already set records with a few hours of warming left for this afternoon.

The heat will build through the Upper Midwest and Central Plains into the West Great Lakes this weekend. Dozens of records will likely be broken.

Much above average temperatures are expected to continue into next week. The forecast from the Climate Prediction Center for next week and into the beginning of March keeps temperatures warmer than normal for the eastern half of the nation.
