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.

This morning, like yesterday is starting out with a little sun but clouds are threatening to take over. We had our first hard frost last night so that should spell the end to most of my flowers and the tomato plants. We did manage to harvest our last good tomatoes and they are already turning red just since yesterday. I'll miss my fresh tomatoes. What you buy in the grocery store just aren't the same. We can expect a little warm-up next week with our temps back into the 50s and closer to normal. We did see a few light snow showers yesterday although they didn't last long and were probably lake effect. We can expect more of these as the season wears on.
Right now (9:15 AM EDT), our temp is 34F, the humidity is 87% and winds are calm. The pressure is 29.98 inches and steady. The dew point is 30F and visibility is 10 miles. Skies are mostly cloudy. Our high yesterday was 49F and the overnight low was 31F. Normals are 56F / 37F. Sunrise was at 8:01 AM and sunset will be at 6:39 PM.
