...ELEVATED WILDFIRE POTENTIAL FOR ALL OF UPPER MICHIGAN DUE TO
A COMBINATION OF GUSTY WINDS, DRY AND WARM CONDITIONS...

Gusty southeast winds as high as 20 to 25 mph, combined with dry
and warm conditions and a lack of significant recent rainfall
will lead to an elevated wildfire potential today into early
this evening across most of Upper Michigan. The warmest conditions
and highest winds will occur this afternoon over the west half of
Upper Michigan. Do not burn today! Immediately report any
wildfires to local emergency services by calling 911.

Burn restrictions remain in effect. For complete details, visit
