(WXYZ) — As the clock turns to September, many people are eyeing cooler temperatures across metro Detroit after a warm summer.

7 First Alert Meteorologist Kevin Jeanes said that metro Detroit will get its first taste of fall-like weather next week, but temperatures aren't always fall-like in September.

In eight of the last 12 years, there have been at least two days in September that have reached 90°.

We are losing daylight at a rate of about 2 1/2 minutes per day, and average temperatures do fall throughout the month.

On Sept. 1, the average high is 79° in metro Detroit while the average low is 60°. By Sept. 30, the average high drops to 68° and the average low to 49°.
