I live right in the middle of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Our Great Lakes protect us from much of the extreme weather in other states.

Our autumn weather has been quite nice for the most part, however this week has been a bit blustery. Our temps today are about 10-15 degrees below normal and winds are quite strong. It really feels like a fall day. Last night we received 0.16" of rain but we remain much below our normal for the year. The fall colors have been spectacular this season and I'd say that we're about at our peak right now. But with these winds, the leaves won't remain on the trees much longer.
Right now (4 PM), our temp is 44.1F which will probably be our high for the day. The humidity is 44% and winds are from the west at 20 mph with our highest gust at 31 mph. The pressure is 29.97" and rising.
This Afternoon: Isolated showers. Mostly cloudy, with a steady temperature around 45. West wind around 15 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.
Tonight: Mostly cloudy, with a low around 34. West wind 6 to 14 mph becoming south southwest after midnight. Winds could gust as high as 21 mph.
Thursday: Partly sunny, with a high near 58. Windy, with a south southwest wind 13 to 18 mph increasing to 24 to 29 mph in the afternoon. Winds could gust as high as 38 mph.
Thursday Night: A chance of showers. Mostly cloudy, with a low around 32. Northwest wind 7 to 14 mph. Chance of precipitation is 30%.
Friday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 51. North northeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming light and variable in the afternoon.
Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 34.
