CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - The sun is shining, the snow is melting. It's above freezing in eastern Iowa and it's putting smiles on faces.

"It's just good for everybody's health and good for everybody's spirit to be able to out without coats and hats and you see lots of kids playing outside and even riding bikes," said Whitney Alber, who lives in Cedar Rapids. "It's great."

Four-year-old Chase isn't going coat-less, but he is enjoying the higher temperatures. When asked about his favorite part about the higher temperatures, he said "the sun!"

Cars have been getting covered with  salt and sand and it's been too cold to go to the car wash. Those businesses will likely be busy over the weekend.


These certainly aren't the conditions we're used to seeing in mid-January.

"It's supposed to be snowing and icy and wearing hats and gloves so this weather's awesome," said Alber.
