GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

People in the western Carolinas have enjoyed a recent stretch of unseasonably warm weather.

In fact, the National Weather Service in Greer said the mercury climbed to 73 degrees on Tuesday, tying the day's record high set in 1998. The warm weather forced Ice On Main, the outdoor ice-skating rink in downtown Greenville, to close until temperatures cooled down.

Some people said they loved the warm weather. However, others said they look forward to wearing the scarves and sweaters during the Christmas season - a near impossibility with the spring-like temps.

For those who prefer the cold, FOX Carolina Chief Meteorologist Kendra Kent said she has some good news - at least for a little while.

Kent said a cold front will swing through the area, bringing showers and a cooldown to the western Carolinas. She said Thursday will be the coolest day of the week, with highs in the 50s, which is seasonable.

Temperatures will quickly rebound, however, Kent said. She said temps will once again climb into the 70s by late in the weekend for the Upstate.

Kent said another cold front moves into the region early next week, bringing the cooler air back.
