Temperature map is red for another very long stretch


The weather pattern over the next month doesn’t look normal. While I wouldn’t call the coming weather “warm” in the summer perspective, it certainly won’t be really fall-like.

Let’s look at the normal high temperatures first, to set us up for knowing what is cold and warm, compared to long-term averages.

When I show you a lot of maps giving us warmer than normal conditions, we should still be thinking high-60s to mid-70s.

I also want to remind you that mornings will be chilly, even with warmer than normal temperatures. The average low temperatures for early October are in the low-40s across southern Lower and in the high-30s in northern Michigan.

Now let’s look into the great stretch of weather coming. We can say that dry weather is nice, now that we’ve all had enough rain.
