Hello!

Thank you for using the Ask an Expert Service.

You can go to the MSU Enviroweather website. https://enviroweather.msu.edu/

MSU has a number of weather stations throughout the state, which are depicted on a map on the website with yellow dots. I believe the closest station to you would be the Commerce Township location.

Select this station (https://enviroweather.msu.edu/weather.php?stn=cmc) then under "Weather Observations and Summaries" select "Soil Conditions." This summary report contains information on local, daily minimum and maximum soil temperatures at 2 and 4 inches below surface level.

Please let me know if you need further assistance!

Regards,
Irene
