Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

MADISON (WKOW) - Highs across the region ranged from low-to-mid 40s, making it the warmest day of the year so far.

In Madison, the high hit 46 degrees.

The last time it was this warm was 62 days ago, back on December 23rd.

Mild temperatures are expected to continue for the rest of the week, with highs ranging from low-to-upper 30s. Highs will continue to hit above average through the weekend, average high temp currently is 34 degrees.

This has the week ahead feeling more like March instead of February!

Warmer temperatures are leading to melting across the region. Which, is expected to continue in moderate to minor fashions this week.

Highs will be above freezing, lows will dip below freezing.

While this limits amount of melting, it also could bring refreezes. Which, can potentially be dangerous leading to black ice or concerns with pavement (roads and sidewalks).

The week will be mainly quiet, until the weekend which looks to be the next shot at a snow/rain/mix. Although, there will still be plenty of dry time.
