FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR NORTHERN LOWER MICHIGAN
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GAYLORD MI
455 AM EDT Wed May 24 2017

...Showers linger through Thursday...

.DISCUSSION...An area of low pressure will very slowly move
through the Ohio Valley today through Thursday. This will result
in periodic showers and cooler than normal temperatures across the
region. The system is expected to depart the region heading into
the weekend, with rain-free weather and warmer temperatures for
the first part of the upcoming holiday weekend. But, shower and
thunderstorm chances return for Sunday and Monday.
