People Getting Out Due To Warm Weather
Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) Warmer weather means people are getting out and having a little fun in the sun.
Guy Jans is having fun with his friends in the Twin Falls City Park.
They're loving the warmer weather.
Resident Guy Jans says, "We are out here every week as long as the weather is nice."
"We brought the kids down to the park, all 4 of them, with our packed picnic lunch," says Heather Koepnick, Twin Falls Resident.
It's a great break from the extreme winter the area has endured this winter.
"We're definitely pulling ourselves out of Winter. You can get into April where Winter tries to hold on but for the most part, I think it's safe to say Winter is mostly done," says Brian Neudorff, Chief Meteorologist, Idaho's First News.
Koepnick adds, "It's great. I think it's a great opportunity to get the kids up and out of the house. We've been cooped up all winter. It's beautiful weather out and enjoy the park."
The weather isn't just bringing people out to the Twin Falls City Park. Temperatures are also close to hitting record highs.
Neudorff says, "Temperatures are ranging anywhere from 22 to 23 degrees above average for this time of year."
But the heat isn't expected to last very long...
"Cold front arrives on Sunday. That's going to bring cooler temperatures. We're gonna get back to reality and we should be in the low 50s and that's where we're going to be for St. Patrick's Day," predicts Neudorff.
But for Jans and his friends, as long as there's no snow on the ground, they'll still enjoy it.
Jans says, "Oh yes, it'll go until the snow starts."
A little fun to kick off the beginning of Spring.
The end of Winter is officially March 20th.
