Was it really only a few short weeks ago Chicagoans were shoveling out of more than 20 inches of snow?

Earlier this month, Chicago set a record for the white, cold stuff thanks to a blizzard that rocked  the region. Now, the city looks to meet a very different standard set 131 years ago: a whopping 60 degrees on Feb. 17.

Temperatures could reach the low 60s today.

The summer-esque temps should wipe out most of the remaining snow and slush already depleting from unseasonably mild weather.

Despite the feel of summer, skies will remain cloudy, and spring-like showers could develop later this afternoon and into the evening. Expect chillier temps Thursday evening, and a tepid 45 degrees on Friday.

By Sunday, spring fades back into the 30s, with -- wait for it -- snow and sleet on Monday.

But let's worry about that later. For now, enjoy a break from the winter.
