The unseasonably warm winter is hitting Omaha this week, with possible record temperatures for this time of year.

Take your car to Russell Speeder's Car Wash and you might just be waiting in a line.

Dan Bolshaw managed to get here before the line on a perfect day to get his car shiny.

“I can't believe, can't believe this weather we're having, it’s fantastic.”

Speeder's has seen more business in the past three days then they've seen in a long time as people take advantage of warm weather.

The only place more popular may be the park.

Amy Grace came to Stinson Park to play on the playground with her two young boys.

“We left the house this morning without jackets and we'll probably be out here most the week after school just to burn off some energy,” says Grace.

Summer Widhalm and her kids enjoyed basking in the sunshine with a picnic. She says it's nice just to be able to just get up and go.

“It's just been absolutely wonderful to not have to pack them all up like we had to a few years back. It's been brilliant, I love it.”

But the warmer temperatures and lack of snow so far this winter can be bad for one thing, your plants.

Scott Evans the garden shop manager at Mulhall's Nursery says in this weather your plants need some tender love and care.

“Watering is the best thing people can do,” says Evans.

“Your evergreen trees and shrubs definitely need water and any of your other perennials can use some water.”

Evans says people are anxious to grow plants like kale and pansies, with the warmer weather, but he warns against it.

"We still have a month, month and a half before they can go out."
