FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR UPPER MICHIGAN
National Weather Service Marquette MI
513 AM EDT Wed May 24 2017

...Periodic showers into the weekend with light rain amounts...

.DISCUSSION: A low pressure system over the Ohio Valley will
move slowly through the Lower Great Lakes resulting in more
scattered light rain showers for south central and eastern
Upper Michigan into Thursday. After a brief dry period Thursday
night into early Friday, yet another low pressure system
moving in from the west will bring increasing chances for
light showers into the weekend. Daytime high temperatures
will remain below normal today but then a warming trend could
result in slightly above normal readings in the upper 60s to
lower 70s Friday into Saturday away from the Great Lakes shores.
