Old man winter relaxed his icy clutches today to allow temperatures to climb to their warmest levels in five days.
Afternoon highs across the Heartland were in the mid to upper 20s and even a few 30s.
These temperatures are still a little below normal for this time of year as average highs should climb to near 33°.
The forecast is calling for even milder weather over the weekend with highs for both Saturday and Sunday into the 40s.
