If fall 2015 has felt particularly mild to you, you're not mistaken. New data from the National Weather Service shows this autumn has been the second warmest on record for several Michigan cities, including Grand Rapids, Muskegon and Lansing. The reason? Evan Webb, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids, said the above average temperatures can be attributed to El Nino, an event marked by warmer than normal water temperatures in part of the Pacific Ocean.
