QUIET AND MILD FOR NOW...
The snow continued to melt away on Sunday as temperatures climbed well above freezing. The birds were singing, dogs were on longer walks, and Midwesterners wore sweatshirts instead of coats. The warmth will keep on rolling as the week goes on.
Temperatures will be in the 40s and 50s Monday:

There's a cold front that moves through on Thursday that may bring some light precipitation:
Temperatures will be knocked back slightly but still stay above normal and above freezing to end the week. That front will be on chance of precipitation this week, with really little to nothing expected over the next seven days:
The first few days of March looks to be mild and quiet, but it appears in the following week the pattern turns more active and colder. This is the outlook from the Climate Prediction Center for March 7-13:
Enjoy the warmth while it lasts... winter isn't over til it's over!
