Even though it's technically fall, it sure doesn't feel like in Michigan.

Is it just me, or does it seem like summers in Michigan are getting longer and longer? Trust me, I'm not complaining one bit. It's really just more of an observation if anything. I mean if this weather trend continues, I just might stop complaining about winter.

If the predictions are correct, the first week of October is going to feel more like summer rather than fall.

How Warm Will Michigan Get Next Week?

Of course, things can change dramatically between now and next week but according to MLive's Mark Torregrossa, the first week of October will be in the upper 70s. It's even possible that we could even see temps in the 80s. As a matter of fact, the weather app on my phone says that it's going to be 83 degrees on Wednesday, October 4th.

Next week will look very similar to October of 2021 when the month also started out with temps in the 70s in Southeast Michigan. Temps were still above average on October 14th of that year as Detroit saw 81 degrees.


When Was the Warmest October Ever Recorded In Michigan?

According to the Michigan Weather Center, Michigan's warmest October on record was in 1898 when Lansing hit 91 degrees.

While I don't think that we're going to see temps climbing into the 90s, we just might see temps in the 80s.

When Was the Coldest October Ever Recorded in Michigan?

The coldest October on record was in 1869 when parts of Michigan were in the teens for eight straight days.
