4 things to watch for -- Tuesday, October 1st

WDIV-TV Local 4's Evrod Cassimy

Evrod Cassimy: Hey everyone! What a weekend! I started the weekend out by attending Kanye West’s Sunday Service Friday afternoon. It was an absolutely incredible worship experience featuring a gospel choir and pastor from Los Angeles. Kanye and Kim and their kids made a brief appearance as well.

This weekend it actually started to feel like fall. I spent the rest of the weekend running around all over Detroit with my family. One of the stops included Monarch Club with my wife Saturday night. It’s an open restaurant at the top of the Element Hotel at John R and Woodward in Downtown Detroit. While we were on the Penthouse floor, we noticed how chilly it had gotten over the weekend. Chilly temperatures means cider mills, trees changing colors, Thanksgiving and eventually Christmas. I’m so excited. P.S. If you haven’t been to Monarch Club, you gotta check it out!

To end the weekend, I spent it with my wife and sons at a friend's birthday party. It was a nice way to relax before the hustle and bustle of work and school starting on Monday.

Tuesday begins the start of one of my favorite months….Pizza Month! And boy is this year’s pizza month going to be fun! We have a great pizza place dropping off food for us to eat live on the show in the morning. We certainly hope you will join us. We’re on from 4:30-7am and you know what they say… “Miss A Day, Miss A Lot!”

Here's what's coming up on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 on Local 4 News Today

All Morning -- Warmest Day of the Week

Brandon Roux: Tuesday will be the warmest day of the week as we wake up to temps in the mid 60s to low 70s under partly cloudy skies. Look for highs to hit the mid to upper 80s tomorrow and the heat index will be in the low 90s with a mix of sun and clouds as gusty winds pick up SW 5-15 mph gusting to 20-25 mph.

Take it easy Tuesday, but know this will be the end of our Summer stretch this week as showers arrive late Tuesday and early Wednesday with a cold front that will change things dramatically. Right now, there is no worry for severe weather late Tuesday and early Wednesday, but we'll keep you posted.
