If you’re anything like me, you’re ready for spring. I can’t wait for spring to officially arrive and scare away any final snowstorms. But, we’re in Michigan, and you never know when cold weather will pop up and surprise us, even well into spring.

Here in Michigan, we aren’t exactly known for our warm weather. But, we have all the seasons, which makes it a beautiful state that will always keep you on your toes. Some Michigan cities are warmer than others, of course, and now, we have a full list of the Michigan cities with the highest average temperature.

It’s no big surprise that most of the warmer cities are in the southern part of the state. What is surprising, though, at least to me, is that the average temperature doesn’t vary too much across the state. I thought there would be major discrepancies, but there really aren’t. And, while the highest average temperature is fine, I wouldn’t mind it being a few degrees warmer, at least if that means a shorter winter.

Here’s a list of the Michigan cities with the highest average temperature via CurrentResults.com. “The tables give the normals for maximum and minimum yearly temperatures based on weather data collected from 1991 to 2020 by the US National Centers for Environmental Information,” Current Results states. If you dislike cold temperatures but want to stay in Michigan, this list could come in handy for you.
