Wayne State is in Michigan—that’s all that really needs to be said. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Michigan weather, a common saying here is “if you don’t like the weather, wait five minutes.” You never really know what the weather will be like until that day, even when consulting the weather forecast. It has been known to snow in October or be sunny and 60 degrees on Christmas Day.
Generally, though, summers here are hot with some high-humidity days, especially in late July and August; autumn is cool with some surprisingly warm days; winter will be snowy and cold; and spring brings cool mornings, warm afternoons, and lots of rain. The three things you should always have in your car or dorm room are a light jacket, umbrella, and mittens. This way, you’ll always be prepared for whatever weather may come your way.
