All time record high for winter tied Wednesday afternoon

The impressive stretch of warmth is about to end, although temperatures will still remain above average through the end of the week.

Wednesday's high reached 70 degrees in Rockford!  This once again broke the all-time daily record high temperature for the sixth straight day AND tied the all-time record high for February and Meteorological Winter (December - Friday).  That previous record was also 70 degrees set back in February of 2000.  To say this warmth has been exceptional would be an understatement. 

Unfortunately, the trend will favor more of a cooler pattern by the weekend following a strong low pressure system.  Temperatures will fall nearly 50 degrees by Saturday night!
