Danville, VA -- It's hard to believe that winter is just around the corner with 74 degree temperatures.

This week has brought clear and sunny weather, and just managed to tie a record high in Danville.

Some of the hotspots were Dan Daniel Park and the Dan River. The playgrounds attracted plenty of families, while the trails were crowded with joggers and bike riders.

Here's what some folks who were out and about had to say when asked how they were enjoying the weather.

"Oh, I love it. I wish it could stay like this year round," said James Hood.

"Just being able to get out in the yard and get out and come for a walk with my friends - it's pretty nice!" said Kaye Fairer.

"It's beautiful. I enjoy the cold weather, because to me that's more like Christmas time, but it's nice to have a little break," said Jennifer Hannock.

That break will end soon though as temperatures start dipping again Wednesday.
