We care about your comfort
Michigan weather can change quickly, especially as the seasons change. The temperature in the temple may also fluctuate. So for your comfort, wear layers of clothes that you can add or shed.
In the event of severe weather, we will send e-alerts and post on social media platforms. To receive special weather notices, subscribe to our weekly newsletter.
