FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR UPPER MICHIGAN
National Weather Service Marquette MI
406 AM EDT Fri Jul 28 2017

...DRIER AND WARMER THIS WEEKEND...

.DISCUSSION: Mostly clear skies today through the weekend will
allow afternoon relative humidity values drop into the 30s and 40s
each day. Temperatures are expected to warm slightly each day,
with mainly 70s and a few locations seeing 80 degrees today, to
widespread low to upper 80s by Sunday. As high pressure lingers
across the region over the next few days, expect winds to remain
light with no precipitation chances. The next best chance for
precipitation looks to arrive next week Tuesday into Wednesday as
a cold front is expected to push south across Upper Michigan.
