Snow has fallen for the first time this season in the northern part of Michigan's lower peninsula. But despite colder temperatures moving into Metro Detroit, there isn't a risk of freezing flurries here — yet.

"We're going to see a little bit below normal temps for a lot of the next week or so," said Andrew Arnold, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in White Lake Township. "It's not unusually cold, just back to a little bit below normal."

Arnold said the normal high temperatures in Metro Detroit are usually in the low 60s. While Detroit makes its descent into fall temps, other part of the state such as Upper Peninsula have already had snow. A half inch or less fell there toward the Marquette region.

In Gaylord, the National Weather Service posted a photo to Facebook of a svelte snowman sitting amid a puddle of water, saying it was their office's first snowman of the year.
