First Frost Forecast For Michigan This Weekend

Share

The Detroit Free Press reports that a blast of cold air will push temps into the mid-30’s. The cooler air will see metro Detroit experiencing its first frost around the first week of October, according to the report.

It’s official. Fall is here. Northern lower and parts of the Upper Peninsula are expecting lower temps beginning Friday evening producing the first frost of the season.

The fall season officially begins September 22. Changes in the length of daylight along with cooler temperatures will promote visible signs that fall is here as leaves turn to vivid shades of yellow, orange, and red.

News of our first frost brings to mind the need for winterizing our homes. It’s much easier to winterize before bad weather sets in. Frozen gutters can cause the fascia to pull off the house and ice dams can wreak havoc on your shingles causing roof damage.  An ounce of prevention can go a long way, here are some tips for winterizing your home.

First Frost Preparedness for Your Home:

  • Winterize your sprinkler system
  • Unhook hoses and insulate hydrants
  • Seal up any foundation vents
  • Change your furnace filters and turn on thermostats
  • Check weather-stripping around doors, windows, and garage doors
  • Clean out and apply heat tape to gutters, downspouts and eaves.

All too often, Advance Restoration sees the results roof leaks due to winter storm damage that could have been avoided. While temps are still fairly accommodating—there is no time like the present to winterize.
