FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR UPPER MICHIGAN
National Weather Service Marquette MI
600 AM EDT Mon Apr 24 2017

...Dry today then increasing chances for precipitation...

.DISCUSSION: High pressure over Ontario and Quebec will bring
dry conditions to Upper Michigan today as temperatures reach the
upper 50s to lower 60s. Winds may reach 20 to 25 mph while min RH
values drop to 30 percent. A warm front moves through Tonight
into Tuesday but main precipitation holds off til Tuesday night.
Depending on cloud cover, highs on Tuesday could reach upper 60s.
The rest of the week looks wet as low pressure systems track
across the Upper Great Lakes region. Precipitation totals could
reach 1 inch in many areas. Since the lows will track overhead,
expect a large range in daytime temperatures Wednesday into Thursday
with 30s west to near 60 far east. Dry weather returns Friday
into Saturday but more rain moves back in later next weekend.
