We are in currently in the latest recorded snow melt in history and every day that passes the record continues. Normal temperatures should be in the 60s. In fact the last day to hit 50 degrees was almost exactly 6 months ago.

Dave Kellenbenz, Senior Meteoroligist: "It hit 50 on october 23rd of last year 2012, so it's been quite a while since we were at 50."

Temperatures this weekend reached 40 degrees for only the second time this month.
