Fire weather watch

The National Weather Service in Grand Rapids has issued a fire weather watch,
which will be in effect from Friday afternoon through Friday evening.
High pressure will generate extremely dry conditions in Clare, Isabella, Gratiot and
Montcalm counties, along with the rest of southwestern lower Michigan.
The combination of low dew points, wind gusts up to 25 mph from the northwest,
highs in the upper 70s and very dry vegetation will combine to produce extremely
high fire dangers across the region.
Critical fire weather conditions are forecast to occur.
The state already has banned outdoor burning.
