    DTW is consistently among the warmest temps in the area, and it did not used to be. Used to be one of the better radiators. Its not that theres anything wrong with the sensors, but i think changes in nearby environments, pavements, construction, etc play a part.

    I wish you a speedy recovery. Think positive, you will get back to normal. Im an injury adjuster, so my job is going over injuries and medical treatment of people in car accidents. What you are describing is pretty common, so you will get back to your pre-accident self.

    1st 90 of the year. I predict we fall short of the avg of 12, just a gut feeling.

    I am definitely sick of the rain. In terms of amounts we have not had nearly as much here in Southeast Michigan as much of the rest of the sub has, but in terms of how often it's raining, it just seems to be all the time. I love cooler than average temps in the summer, and I do not mind overcast. Of course I would prefer Sun this time of year, but I'm not one of those people who gets depressed just because it's cloudy. (In the late fall through Winter I love overcast, but this is not winter lol). And I can definitely say humidity is never something I have enjoyed. If we can just dry out some and have near to below average temps the rest of the summer, that would be wonderful!

    Yes sir! I was thinking of that yesterday...we are wasting the longest days of the year on solid overcast day after day.

    We are now passing the midway point in June and I have not yet had to turn my central air conditioning on this year! Awesome!

    Definitely starting to get that feeling this will be a cool summer. Of course there will be hot days, im talking overall.

    Spring weather is enjoyable, Spring allergies are NOT.

    I heard someone else say they would take 65゚ every day of the year. I would hate the same thing any kind all year long lol. Different strokes for different folks, but I'm sure you'd miss the changeable weather if it really was 75° and Sunny every day haha.

    Oh I would never count a car sensor as an official temperature, I just commented because usually the car sensor runs warmer than actual temp (especially with sun). And again I'm not saying there's anything wrong with the DTW sensor, obviously being a first order station it's monitored frequently for quality. I'm just noting that when comparing surrounding areas N,S,E,W, from Monroe and Ann Arbor to the already mentioned Detroit City or Pontiac, the temperature disparity between them and DTW is much different now than it was in the 1970s and 1980s.

    DTW almost ALWAYS runs warm compared to surrounding areas. Always. Its not that there is anything wrong with the sensor, its probably the location and amount of pavement nearby thats affecting it vs the placement it was in the 1970s and 1980s. Its still relatively rural in the vicinity of the airport itself, so while UHI is somewhat of a factor i doubt its the main force. Especially comparing the difference of other stations that also have a period of record. The temp sensor in my car often reads colder than the official in the morning when i drive by on the way to work (southside of the airport).
