Weather in October

October is the period of peak fall foliage in the countryside of Michigan that brings the glory of the wilderness into the limelight. The average high temperatures are in the comfortable 56°F (13.3°C) to 63°F (17.2°C) range, but the nights are cold with average low temperatures in the 32°F (0°C) to 44°F (6.7°C) zone.
The daily sunshine lasts between 5 to 6 hours in the majority of the state, with 12 to 15 wet days in the month. The skies are cloudy, especially in the Great Lakes region, due to the mixing of contrasting air masses. 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.
