High of 39 tomorrow and then mid 40s for Thursday and Friday. High of 34 on Saturday.

Even in the 30s, it's still very warm for the season. Even 20's are pretty comfortable.
It still really hasn't felt like winter has set in. Even the very few cold, cold mornings haven't even been that bad because they don't come consistently or consecutively (yet). It's still going to get much, much colder and we're going to get much, much more snow. But even so, we've shaved off almost 2 months of winter so far.

No snow...keeps temps up, no moisture in the air to change that. Normal cyclical weather patterns. I can remember several winters like this over the past 40+ years.

It's just confusing because of the type of winter we had last year. Plus go pull up the Farmers Almanac thread from a few months ago! I was the only one saying we wouldn't have a bad winter. Everyone was saying how this winter was going to be long, cold, and snowy.

As far as I'm concerned winter can start today and we're still almost outta the woods! Have you ever golfed in February in MN!?

I've golfed in every month in MN, IN SHORTS no less...Like I said, while this isn't a normal winter, it is far from unusual.

Record high in Minneapolis for today is 47, forecasted high is 48. It's 45 at my house right now so very possible to hit a record high.

What city has the most similar winters to what we're having right now? Is this like a NYC winter or more of a Chicago winter?
