A springlike Monday did not break the Dec. 3 temperature record in the Quad-Cities.
But it did tie it.
The mercury reached 69 degrees Monday, the mark set in 1970, said National Weather Service meteorologist David Cousins. The highest temperature ever recorded in December is 71 degrees, set on Dec. 4, 1998.
Today's high is expected to reach the mid 50s with cooler temperatures forecast for the rest of the week.
