FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR UPPER MICHIGAN
National Weather Service Marquette MI
455 AM EDT Sun Jul 23 2017

...Cloudy and cooler today...

.DISCUSSION: Cloudy and cooler conditions will prevail today
across much of the area. We could see a few showers and storms,
mainly across the east, but chances diminish later this afternoon
and evening. Northwesterly winds will increase and become breezy
through the afternoon hours, but expect these winds to diminish
tonight and then remain rather light through Monday as high
pressure builds into the region. Drier, warmer weather is in store
for the first part of the work week, but then chances for showers
and storms return late Tuesday through Wednesday as a cold front
approaches from the west.
