Sterling Heights is a city located in Macomb County, Michigan, and is one of Detroit’s core suburb cities. Home to over 129,000 residents, Sterling Heights is the second-largest city in the Detroit Metropolitan Area and is the fourth-largest city in the entire state of Michigan. Sterling Heights has been continually ranked as one of the top cities to live in in the state of Michigan as well as the United States, and surprisingly was ranked as one of the safest medium-sized cities in the entire country.

Founded in the 1830’s and originally known as Jefferson Township, Sterling Heights was originally nothing more than an agricultural community prior to the turn of the 20th century. The rise of Detroit as a manufacturing hub of the United States, and the affluence that came during the 1950’s and 60’s, helped Sterling Heights rise to prominence. It has since become a major commercial center of the Detroit Metropolitan Area despite the fact that manufacturing is still prevalent in the city and the surrounding area.

Located so close to Detroit, many of the characteristics of Detroit’s climate also make up that of Sterling Heights. Average daily highs in the summer months usually only reach into the low 80’s, with overnight lows usually dropping down into the upper 50’s and low 60’s. Snow is common during the winter months, and average daily highs only reach into the low-to-mid 30’s and dropping well below freezing overnight. Winter auto transport to and from Sterling Heights can be difficult for that reason.
