FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR UPPER MICHIGAN
National Weather Service Marquette MI
447 AM EDT Sat Apr 22 2017

...Dry and warm weather expected into tonight...

.DISCUSSION:  High pressure with very dry air will remain in control
of the weather until tonight when a cold front moves across the area
and brings a chance of rain and snow mostly to the west and north areas
with light amounts of precipitation expected tonight into Sunday. This
front will stall out south of the area Sunday night and then move back
north as a warm front on Monday with a better chance at a widespread
rain for Monday night into Tuesday morning. Temperatures for next week
look to stay cooler than normal along with unsettled weather continuing.
Heavy amounts of precipitation are not expected at this time.
