Fire Weather Planning Forecast for northern Lower Michigan
National Weather Service Gaylord MI
401 AM EDT Mon May 28 2018

...Hot and humid today and Tuesday...

.DISCUSSION...More heat and humidity on tap over the next couple
of days. There is a chance for a few thunderstorms to develop
across southeast fire weather zones this afternoon. Tropical
moisture from the remnants of Alberto will bring increasing
chances for a soaking rain Wednesday and Thursday. Elevated fire
danger is not anticipated Tuesday as minimum relative humidity is
not expected to dip down below 35 percent, leaving only the hot
temperatures as a possible elevated fire danger contributor.
