Temperatures soared to 61 degrees on Thursday and while it is quite warm for Iowa this time of year, it is not a record. The Marion County record for December 30th was set in 1929 when temperatures hit 63 degrees. The majority of the snow has melted in Marion County, but due to the moisture left behind, roads may still be slick. The warm weather will continue tomorrow with a high near 52.
