Or, do you find a 90 degree day to be warm, desirable, pleasant, refreshing, and enjoyable?
No matter which camp you fall in, sooner or later, metro Detroit will see 90 degrees in the forecast. But, when will that be?
According to The Weather Channel, Detroit is actually one of the later cities in the Midwest to have thermometers record 90 degree temperatures.

In fact records show, that the earliest 90 degrees day ever recorded in Detroit was on May 5, 1895–over a century ago!
