Today it got up to around 40 here in northern Illinois. Forecast for tomorrow and Friday: 48 and mostly sunny. In fact, it's supposed to be in the 30s or 40s with clear weather everyday until next Wednesday at least.
Keep in mind, this is early January in northern Illinois. It should be 10 with snow on the ground. Very strange. Whatever though, I'll take it. I think we've had a total of maybe an inch of snow so far this year. While winter is not close to being over yet, the mild weather we've had the first month and a half is very nice. Especially considering the harsh winters we've had the past several years.
