Step outside and it won't feel like Cleveland in February.

Cleveland reached a high of 70 degrees just before noon on Tuesday. That means the record, previously set at 69 degrees in 1930, has been broken.

And it's going to continue getting warmer! The forecast high expected today is 74 degrees. 

Those who are out west in places like Phoenix and Las Vegas are experiencing colder temperatures in the 30s and 40s, likely causing them to feel a wave of jealousy towards Clevelanders.

The Cleveland Indians, who are training in Goodyear, even poked fun at how the temperatures flip-flopped.

The warmest day ever recorded in February in Cleveland was on February 24, 2017, when temperatures reached 77 degrees.
