Fall in Metro Detroit

Mid-fall is kind of transitional period when people start putting away the summer toys such as boats and bikes.  Some summertime activities are not doable anymore.  You are not going to be on the boat in the fall.  Grass starts to slow down growing and weather conditions aren’t suitable for winter kinds of entertainment.   There is no snow in September or October.  Even in November the snow amount is minimal in South east Michigan.  On the other hand autumn is hunting season which draws thousands of people to the woods and lakes to hunt deer and waterfowl.  It is the time of football, soccer for the kids, bonfires and Halloween.  Halloween is big in some of the local metro Detroit cities.

Cities like downtown Northville go all out for Halloween. 

Many people love Michigan's fall weather.  The cool fall breezes are a welcome relief to some after the warm winter months.  In October the fall colors are spectacular.  Mid-October is the time of the peak fall foliage.  I have heard many people say over the years how much they love fall.  The only negative I can see is having to rake all the leaves up after they drop.  In some cities like Livonia all you have to do is rake the leaves out to the street and the city will pick them up.

Michigan fall

Michigan is prone to thunderstorms. Thunderstorms occur for 30 days on average in the year. Severe thunderstorms occur in the southern portion of Michigan.  Usually they occur when a cold front comes through after a warm day.  Though you will still get them in the fall.  

Fall is the second rainy season of the year in South East Michigan.  In the spring we get May showers.  It is the same way in the fall.  I myself believe we get heavy rains so the plants can soak up the water to prepare for winter.

Michigan September Weather

For some reason fall sunsets seem so spectacular.  Even better than the sprin and summer.  The month of September in Detroit experiences essentially constant cloud cover, with the percentage of time that the sky is overcast or mostly cloudy remaining about 35% throughout the month.  The clearest day of the month is September 1, with clear, mostly clear, or partly cloudy conditions 67% of the time.

Over the course of September in Detroit, the length of the day is rapidly decreasing. From the start to the end of the month, the length of the day decreases by 1 hour, 22 minutes, implying an average daily decrease of 2 minutes, 49 seconds, and weekly decrease of 19 minutes, 41 seconds.  The shortest day of the month is September 30, with 11 hours, 46 minutes of daylight and the longest day is September 1, with 13 hours, 8 minutes of daylight.

September starts the wonderful fall season in Metro Detroit with warm temperatures and the start of the rainy season.  September sees rainfall totals between 4" (101.6mm) to 6" (152.4mm) amid partly cloudy skies.  It is the start of cider mill pilmgrimage.   People love the fresh cider and home made donuts.  Collect varieties of apples from a local orchard or visit one of the many pumpkin patches that spring up in the fall season. The leaves turn color by the third week of September in the northern parts of Michigan and progress steadily towards the south.

Michigan October Weather

October brings the end of gardens and perennials as you will get some nightime frost.  October is the period of peak fall foliage in the countryside of Michigan that brings the glory of Mother nature into the limelight. Usually by Halloween many of the trees are beginning to be bare.  The daily sunshine lasts between 5 to 6 hours in the majority of the state, with 12 to 15 wet days in the month. Daily low temperatures decrease by 10°F, from 51°F to 41°F, rarely falling below 32°F or exceeding 62°F. The skies are cloudier as the sun starts to take a vacation due to the mixing of contrasting air masses.  You are no longer going to have to deal with muggy weather in October as the humidity drops.

The first cold waves hit in the Upper Peninsula by the mid of the fall season as the foliage reaches its peak. Evenings are breezy, while nights tend to be cold.  Warm clothing is beneficiary in the evenings, while the days are still mild to remain. The harvest season is on its last legs with the invasion of frost on the lands. October is the last month of fair weather in Michigan.  The month of October in Detroit experiences increasing cloud cover, with the percentage of time that the sky is overcast or mostly cloudy increasing from 37% to 47%.  The clearest day of the month is October 1, with clear, mostly clear, or partly cloudy conditions 63% of the time.

Michigan November Weather

November is the true start from warm to cold weather in the late fall season in Michigan.  The winds start to pick up.  It is like Mother nature knows there are no leaves and the trees now can withstand the high winds.  On the great lakes they call it the gales of November.  The Edmund Fitzgerald freighter went down during one of the storms on the great lakes.  The trees are beginning to be just limbs without leaves.  The flowers are gone except for the chrysanthemums, and decorative cabbages. The fall foliage is beyond its peak. The nights start to drop below freezing.  November sees the first snowfall in Michigan though in the lower peninsula and around Metro Detroit it is usually just a dusting.  It is rare to have a large snowfall of 3+ inches in November.  The short days hardly receive 3 hours of daily sunshine as cloudy skies rule the roost.

Daily high temperatures decrease by 12°F, from 54°F to 42°F, rarely falling below 31°F or exceeding 67°F.  Daily low temperatures decrease by 9°F, from 41°F to 32°F, rarely falling below 21°F or exceeding 52°F.  The hunting season is in its last lap, as is the fishing season with the challenging cold conditions. A colorful forest walk and warm chocolate by a roaring fire in the back yard is a dream come true for many. Expect the cold to increase rapidly and dress in layers after sunset. November ends the tourist season in Michigan, with only a few remaining to enjoy the snowy activities of winter.

Holidays in the fall in Michigan are

1st Monday in September – Labor Day.

3rd Saturday in October - Sweetest Day.

November 10 – Veterans Day.

4th Thursday in November – Thanksgiving.

Russ Ravary top Wayne county realtor

Here are a couple of my testimonials from my past clients

Russ has worked with dozens of my clients in the last few years.  He is knowledgeable about the mortgage process and keeps the whole process moving.  When I need more documentation or paperwork he gets it done quickly so the clients can close on time.  It is a pleasure to work with a realtor that knows his business and knows how to solve issues when they arise.  I have closed all the transactions I have started with him.  That is a record I wish all real estate agents had.  My clients love working with Russ and I will keep sending him more clients.

Russ was an awesome Realtor.  We were first time home buyers so we were a little unsure of what to do, or what to look for when buying a home.  Matt, a friend of mine had bought a house through Russ before and recommended Russ so we thought we would give him a try.  
We wanted to be near family, friends, and work so it limited the number of cities we wanted to live in.  We wanted a good city with good schools and easy highway access, too.  Most of all we wanted an updated home that we would not have to spend thousands of dollars to get it the way we wanted.  
Russ was patient and showed us every house we wanted to see which is great because some realtors are so pushy.  He never pushed us to buy.  We had the freedom to choose the house we wanted.
Russ helped us put together a solid offer so we got the newer home we wanted.  We are loving our home and have made it our own.  Russ is an awesome Realtor and I would call him and recommend him to any of my friends and co-workers.

We highly recommend Russ to help you in your home buying and selling process.  He is very professional, knowledgeable, helpful and easy to work with.

He initially came by the house we were selling and took a tour and let us know what he thought would help in the sale our home.  We listened to his advice and received three full price offers the same day it went on the market.  Needless to say we were elated.

He also worked hard to help us find our dream home and made the overall process very easy for us.  Anytime we had questions, he was very quick to get back with us and even went out of his way to make sure things went as smooth as possible.

My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Russ.  If you take his advice, you will not be sorry.

We will definitely be recommending him to anyone we know who is looking to buy or sell their home.
