We should see near-record warmth on Tuesday. Kare 11's Sven Sundgaard says some parts of the state might even touch 50 degrees. "No arctic outbreaks are in sight," Sundgaard says.

The National Weather Service office in Chanhassen says temperatures throughout January have been 5 to 8 degrees above normal.

Paul Douglas at the Star Tribune shares some fun facts on the weird weather: We've only seen three nights below zero in the Twin Cities this winter, and we've saved about 19 percent on heating bills.

And Kare 11 reports the medallion hunters in St. Paul aren't minding the mild weather one bit as they close in on the prize:
