BALMY EASTER: Making The Most Of The Weather

We kicked off the weekend with above average temperatures and central Iowans spent the holiday weekend enjoying the beautiful weather before it disappears again.

On a beautiful Easter, metro residents didn't waste much time inside. The nice temperatures brought lots of people out to the bike trail at Greenwood Park, “We`re just walking, enjoying the day, it`s beautiful out, so we just got out of the house for a little while.”

The Riverwalk Dog Park brought out lots of furry friends but their owners weren’t too happy about the possibility of colder temps heading our way, “I`m done with the snow, I’m very done,” said dog owner, Stacey Bradley.

So for now, both man and man's best friend will enjoy a day in the sun, even if it is short lived.

Last year on this day, the high temperature reached 75 degrees with a low in the 50's.
