Metro Detroit weather: Temps fall as Autumn arrives
Good Thursday morning on a day that becomes the transition from Summer to Fall. It is cooling down right on schedule with Metro Detroit temperatures dipping down into the lower and middle 50s. It was a big cold front that brought the storms yesterday, but we are finally feeling the cooler air today. We have quite a bit of cloud cover coming and going without any rain or fog as you head out and about to get going into what some consider to be Michigan’s finest season. It’s sweatshirt or light jacket weather for that early morning walk with the dog and today may be the first day of pants instead of shorts at school. We will struggle to warm with a gusty and cooler breeze.
