WEST MICHIGAN —  It’s been unseasonably warm over the last several days.  Other than a burst of snow and cold couple of days to finish October, we’ve lacked any cold burst of air in the entire region.


Our normal high for this time of the year is 49 degrees and we have been nowhere close to that anytime recently.  We won’t break a record Sunday, but we’ll be very close Monday before the wind switches and rain chances go up for Election Day.


A late week cold front looks to bring much cooler weather to the entire state as temperatures are expected to fall nearly 20 degrees from where they’re at right now.


Expect highs in the mid 40s as a result of this cold front.  It will be fairly short lived, however, as the core of the cold air moves off to the east.
