FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR SOUTHWEST LOWER MICHIGAN
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE GRAND RAPIDS MI
307 PM EDT FRI JUL 3 2015

...MAINLY DRY HOLIDAY WEEKEND EXPECTED ...

.DISCUSSION...
THE AREA WILL SEE VERY QUIET AND SUMMER-LIKE TEMPERATURES FOR THE
FOURTH OF JULY HOLIDAY WEEKEND. THE ONLY CHANCE OF RAIN THROUGH THE
WEEKEND WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE ACROSS THE INTERIOR PORTIONS OF
CENTRAL LOWER MICHIGAN DURING THE AFTERNOON ON INDEPENDENCE DAY.

A BETTER CHANCE OF RAIN ACROSS THE AREA WILL ARRIVE LATE MONDAY AND
INTO EARLY TUESDAY AS A COLD FRONT MOVES THROUGH THE AREA. SHOWERS
AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BECOME MORE LIKELY AT THAT TIME.
