FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SOUTHWEST LOWER MICHIGAN
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND RAPIDS MI
345 PM EDT SUN MAY 29 2016

...PLEASANT...

.DISCUSSION...THE REGION WILL CONTINUE TO SEE SLIGHTLY COOLER AND
DRIER AIR MOVE IN TONIGHT. WE WILL SEE PLEASANT WEATHER TONIGHT
INTO MEMORIAL DAY. MOST OF TUESDAY WILL ALSO REMAIN NICE, BUT AN
ISOLATED SHOWER WILL BE POSSIBLE TOWARD THE END OF THE DAY. A
BETTER CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND A FEW STORMS WILL ARRIVE TUESDAY
NIGHT AS A COLD FRONT HEADS TOWARD THE AREA.

THE FRONT WILL SLOWLY MOVE THROUGH SO THE CHANCES OF RAIN MAY LINGER
WEDNESDAY AND WEDNESDAY NIGHT.  DRY WEATHER IS THEN EXPECTED FOR THE
LATTER PART OF THE WEEK, WITH THE NEXT CHANCE OF RAIN HOLDING OFF
UNTIL SUNDAY.
