Fire danger across all of northern Michigan will be elevated once again this afternoon, due mainly to:

  • Temperatures ranging through the 70s
  • Very low humidity levels in the 20-30% range 

Those enjoying the outdoors on this beautiful day are strongly urged to take the proper precautions with campfires and other open flames or fireworks, and remember to properly dispose of used smoking materials.

Due to recent dry and warm weather, burn permits are not being issued across much of northern Michigan. For the latest on your county, please see the Michigan DNR Burn Permit Page.

For additional information on weather conditions across Michigan, visit the National Weather Service web pages from Grand Rapids, Detroit, and Marquette.
