(WXYZ) — Love it or hate it, the first taste of fall weather is knocking on the door for metro Detroit. A blast of cold air will likely plunge temperatures below average for everyone in the middle of the U.S.; including the Midwest.

It's still going to be hot this week. Thursday looks like the hottest day with a high of 85° (average high is 79°). Highs may be closer to 65° by Tuesday next week.

The Climate Prediction Center shows the probabilities of below-average temperatures in the next 8-14 days (September 7th-13th).

Afternoon temperatures may be in the mid 60s, and morning temps may be in the 40s Tuesday-Thursday.

This may be a good time to mention, metro Detroit has had at least one 90° day in September eight of the last ten years.
