MILWAUKEE-Cloud cover, some peaks of sunshine and temperatures in the 40's. Winter weary folks didn't need any coaxing to get out and enjoy the outdoors on Friday.

"We've been wanting to get outside for such a long time with the new baby,"  Christine Scott Thomson told CBS 58 News. "When it gets over 20 that becomes the time we can get outside."

We also came across Jill Jurkens and Helen Bagshaw having a great time on the swings at a local park.

"Who doesn't love to swing?" said Jurkens, "It's just freeing and great to be out here today."

The break will be short lived.
